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.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
