GET BACK IN JOINT!

“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.”

(Galatians 6:1)

“All my bones are out of joint” (Psalm 22:14). All of us get “out of joint” occasionally – with our spouses, with the Church, with the Lord. We don’t mean to be that way. We don’t anticipate our actions or feelings, but we find ourselves in dissension with others to whom we really are connected. Paul said that the body is “joined and held together by every supporting ligament” (Ephesians 4:16). 

When we get “out of joint” with the rest of the Body of Christ, we no longer supply what others need, nor do we submit to the Head, who is Christ. We cause ourselves, as well as those to whom we are connected, much pain.

The remedy? One who is caught in a “fault” (literally) “out of joint” (Galatians 6:1 KJV) should be restored gently by those who are spiritual. Such a person is still part of the Body, and we need him/her. We must always remember to deal in the spirit of meekness with one who is “out of joint,” because our Lord Himself paid the price when His bones were all “out of joint”! Get back in joint with your spouse and Christian friends: Jesus is the joint that joins you!
