Galatians Week 3







Welcome to week three of six weeks on the book of Galatians!









Study Questions Week 3


  1. How do you define faith? Write out your definition and then compare it to the definition in Hebrews 11:1
  2. Do you rely on the law or faith to draw you closer to God? 
    1. What is one area of your life that you would like to have more faith? 
      1. Take one step towards that faith that you desire.
    2. What is one area of your life that you have an abundance of faith? 
      1. Take one step to share that faith with someone else.
  3. When you were younger what is something that you just couldn't wait to do but your parents wouldn't allow? Once you were old enough, did you see why they made their decision? 
    1. What type of guardians has God placed in your life today? Do you trust that God has what's best for you in mind?
    2. Think back to a specific time when God asked you to wait or said no to something that was important to you. How did that situation resolve itself? 
    3. After contemplating these two questions, meditate on Galatians 3:14
  4. Read Galatians 3:28 in several different versions (Biblegateway.com and Bible.com are good sources for this if you don't own several versions). Re-write that verse using our everyday language. Think about what people groups seem distant and which ones you identify with. 
  5. Challenge of the week: What promises has God made to you? Have you heard a specific word from God about something in your life? If not, how has this promise that we are heirs of the Kingdom of God been fulfilled so far in your life?Take some time this week to write down all the promises that you can think of that God has fulfilled in your life and ones that you’re still waiting on being answered.

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 …

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap.




Study Questions Week 10


When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others? When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person?When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments? God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise? Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even if you are in the midst of a s…
