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.

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
