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.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.
