Galatians: The Gospel of Freedom
What Counts in Christ?

  • Freedom from What?
  • The Disadvantage of Circumcision (and all Self-Righteousness)
  • The Works of a Christian

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Galatians 5:1-6. What is the yoke of slavery the Galatians are in danger of submitting to?
  2. Why does law observance sever someone from Christ? Does this person in verse 4 lose their salvation? Why or why not?
  3. Consider verse 5. Why is this a good description of a Christian? How do holiness and love for others grow out of this “eager waiting”?
  4. How much of a difference does your certain future hope make to your life now? How will remembering your hope increase your love for others?

Memory Verse of the Week: Galatians 5:5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness. (ESV)
