SERMON SERIES: Galatians

SERMON TITLE: “Family Matters” 

Galatians 3

 

This week, Pastor David continued the sermon series, "Galatians" by discussing our place in God’s family.

 

  • What is the difference in being created by God and being part of God’s family? What is required to be part of God’s family?
  • How are you tempted to believe that your place in God’s family is secured/maintained by your works? What helps you resist that temptation?
  • What does our baptism symbolize? What does it mean to be “clothed” with Christ?
  • Think about your relationship with Christ. Do your public actions bring honor to God’s family? Why or why not?
  • Where do you see and/or feel divisions in God’s family? What is one thing you can do to improve that division and increase unity in God’s family?

ADDITIONAL DISCOVERY:

 

For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise. 

~ Galatians 3:26-29

For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.

~ Romans 5:10

 

O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified. Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? Did you suffer so many things in vain – if indeed it was in vain? Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith?

~Galatians 3:1-5

 

Just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness”? Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, forseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the main of faith.

~Galatians 3:6-9

 

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

~Galatians 3:27

 

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

~Galatians 3:28
