Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Overtaken- catch up with and pass while traveling in the same direction. To go in front of, surprise.
Fault- side slip, a deviation, unintentional error, fault, to fall aside.
Restoration is a preventive maintenance step for the spiritual. To see a brother struggling, and to pass on by, is to wound ones own self. How concerned are we this day about keeping others alive in the church?
In war it is understood that you give your word of honor to do your duty to stand and fight instead of running away and deserting your friends. So maybe a brother, or sister has been overtaken, instead of distancing ourselves from them may we draw close to help them with their walk.
