Galatians Week 4





Week 4 of six weeks studying Galatians!







Study Questions Week 4
  1. Abba doesn't just mean daddy. It has a sense of ownership built into the word. It's "my daddy" God belongs to us and we belong to him. 
    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
  2. When Paul showed up in Galatia, he wasn't feeling too well but they didn't let that stop them from hearing the good news he had to share. We can learn something from everyone we encounter if we take the time to do so. 
    1. Think of one person in your life that is amazing at something you would like to know more about how to do. Contact them and see if they will give you a lesson.
  3. Paul says in verse 18 "It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good, and to be so always..." 
    1. Define the word zeal.
    2. What are you zealous for? Is it for a good purpose? Have you lost your zeal? 
      1. Find your zeal this week and act upon it.
  4. Read the story of Hagar and Sarah (Genesis 16 & 21). 
    1. Take a moment and try to imagine yourself as Hagar and then Sarah. 
    2. Share any insights that you get with the group or in the comments below.
  5. Week 4 challenge: Come up with an example in your own life of a law that you used to be a slave to but have now found freedom in Christ. Thank God for that freedom, even if it was won a long time ago or just today. Share your freedom with others.

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.
