Here are a few questions for you to ponder either as a group or on your own.
What are your expectations of Bible Study/Devotional time?
What is the reality of your Bible Study/Devotional time?
Does viewing our relationship as child of God instead of a slave change how we approach our time in the Bible?
What is your motivation for studying the Bible?
What is the role of the Holy Spirit in your devotional time and while we meet together? John 15:26 and John 14:26.
What do you want to get out of this study? If you are studying with a group what do you want from the group study as well as individual study?
If you are doing these questions with a group read Galatians out loud. (It takes about 15/20 minutes). What main messages of themes stick out for you?
What are some questions do you have about what you have read in the book of Galatians? No need to have the answers to these questions but take time to jot them down.
If I had to choose a verse to summarize the message of Galatians it would be Galatians 5:1 “For Freedom Christ has set us free, stand firm therefore and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.” What does it mean that Christ has set us free?
What are we standing firm on?
What does a life free in Christ look like?
What does a life submitting to a yoke of slavery look like?
Can both happen at the same time? Slavery and freedom in Christ?
