Galatians Week 2 Chapter 2:1-21



Welcome to week two of six on the book of Galatians! 







Study Questions Week 2


  1. Have you ever thought that the time for something to happen has passed? Take some time to look up some stories of those that have waited a long time for something in scripture (Abraham and Sarah's baby, David's time between being anointed as king and serving in that role, the prophets) 
    1. What mistakes did they make? 
    2. What did they get right? 
    3. What can we learn from their waiting and apply it to our own lives?
  2. God shows no favoritism. Do you ever feel like you are the forgotten child? The one that is left out and overlooked? 
    1. Spend some time this week in a quiet space and pray this breath prayer
      1. Breathe in "Abba"
      2. Breathe out "I belong to you"
    2. Contemplate how God loves you and wants the best for you. If you have the time and desire, memorize the scripture from Jeremiah 29:12-14
  3. Paul is very familiar with the law as a Pharisee, part of his job was to make sure that others were obeying it. Jesus says that he did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17). What do you think Jesus means by this? 
  4. Do you have a friend that's willing to confront you when you go off course? Set up a time with them and ask them to answer this question about you "What areas in my life do you see that I need to work on with Jesus?" If you don't have a friend like this then think of someone that ou trust and ask them if they would be willing to help you out with this question.
  5. Challenge for the week: Take some time to explore an area of your life where you have become more reliant on rules or traditions than on Jesus who lives in you. Ask God what you can do to move away from that slavery and into His freedom.

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
