This week we will read through the book of Galatians. Paul writes this epistle to the church to encourage believers to walk by faith. Do not give up your “voyage of faith and chart a course based on works…Galatians is a vigorous attack against the gospel of works, and a defense of the gospel of faith.” As you read, remind yourself of the gospel and how you should respond accordingly. The law is not for us to try to perfectly keep, but it shows us our need for Christ. Grow to know and love Him more this week. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon. Please consider the questions below regarding the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups.

Do you ever struggle to do what the Bible teaches? Why?
What does it mean to walk by the Spirit? (Galatians 5:16)
How do you know where the Spirit is leading?
How is the flesh defined?
Can you walk by the Spirit and the flesh at the same time?
How do we get rid of the desires of the flesh?
What would crucifying your flesh look like on a daily basis? (Galatians 5:24)
Are there rules and laws against the sins listed in Galatians 5:19-21?
What is the Fruit of the Spirit?
Are there rules and regulations about how much Fruit of the Spirit you can demonstrate?
Does Galatians 5:19-21 or Galatians 5:22-23 characterize your life more?
- Sunday, May 6 – Mark 1:9-13
