GAL. 5:25-6:10

Living Life by the Spirit

Start with prayer, then read the passage Galatians 5:25-6:10.

Investigate:

  • Why does being conceited produce “provoking” and “envying” (v 26)?

  • Paul has told Christians to “keep in step with the Spirit (v 25).  How will doing so make us both humble and bold?  How will doing so remove conceit?

  • Instead of the Galatians seeking self-worth in relationships with other Christians, what does Paul tell them to do?  Give an answer for each of the following: verse 1, verse 2, verses 3-4, verse 5, verse 6.

  • What is the principle of verses 7 and 8?

  • What are we encouraged to do in verses 9 and 10?  What motivations and priorities do we have for doing this?

Apply:

  • How do we overcome conceit in our everyday lives?  How does the Gospel help?

  • Looking back at verses 1 through 6, which of these things is our congregation good at? 

  • Which of these could we do better? 

  • How could you as an individual make a difference?

  • How should verses 7 through 10 change our perspective and the way we live our everyday lives?

Discipleship is the process of growing in love for Jesus and His Church over the course of a lifetime demonstrated through obedience, perseverance, and submission.

 

GAL. 5:13-24

Freedom in Love by the Spirit

Start with prayer, then read the passage Galatians 5:13-24.

Investigate:

  • How does the Gospel free us to truly love God and others (vv 13-15)?

  • Describe the daily battle that is taking place in the life of every Christian (vv 16-17).

  • What is encouraging about this truth?  What is challenging?

  • Look at “the acts of the flesh” listed in verses 19-21.  How they are consequences of misplaced desires?

  • Look at “the fruit of the Spirit” listed in verses 22-23.  How are these things products of believing the Gospel?  How are the aspects of serving others in love?

  • What is our role in producing these qualities?  What is the Holy Spirit’s role (cf. v 18, 22, 25)?

Apply:

  • Which of the acts of the flesh are most common and most acceptable in our culture?  Why do you think that is?

  • Which aspects of the fruit of the Spirit are least noticed and least celebrated in the modern church?  Why do you think that is?

  • What would living according to the Spirit look like in our current circumstances of being on stay at home orders?  In what ways might Christians be set apart from others in a time like this?

Discipleship is the process of growing in love for Jesus and His Church over the course of a lifetime demonstrated through obedience, perseverance, and submission.
