Galatians | Week 1
Get Acquainted with Galatians
If you aren’t too familiar with the book of Galatians (or even if you’d consider yourself an expert), we would love for you to spend this first week of our journey getting to know this rich book. Galatians is written by Paul who experienced radical life change after encountering Jesus. You can read his transformation story below. We will see how passionate Paul is about keeping the Gospel of Christ pure, and how adamantly he believes in the freedom Christ brings.
This week, challenge yourself to read all the way through Galatians. If you can, read it all in one sitting. The goal isn’t necessarily for a deep study of the scriptures, but rather to help us grasp the big picture of Paul’s message and determine some of the overarching themes of the book. As you read, maybe journal some questions you have. What stands out to you? Does anything not make sense? Hopefully we’ll be exploring the questions you have in the coming weeks as we dive deeper.
Questions for Reflection
- What is the message of the Gospel?
- How is it unique?
- How is the message of Christ different than the message of the world? Our parents? Other religions? How is it different than the way we sometimes communicate the message of Christ?
- Who is God?
- What has He done for us?
- Who are we in Christ?
