Greetings! Below you will find questions which reference the sermon preached this past Sunday at The Park. I encourage you to begin your group with a time of greeting and introductions. You may choose to reorder the questions below or to write your own. Work hard to facilitate discussion and avoid allowing yourself or another member to speak the entire hour. Ultimately we trust you with leading your group.
- What are some observations you had from this chapter? Were there any new insights you learned about the passage from the sermon?
- What theology was present in this chapter?
- What did you learn about God from reading this chapter?
- Freedom is echoed throughout Galatians and in verse 1 is stated as the end goal or Christ’s sacrifice.
In what ways to you see yourself as free? How are you taking full advantage of the freedom Christ won for you?
- How could Jesus Christ ever be said to be “of no value” in verse 2?
- In light of Romans 8:38-39 & John 10:27-30, how do you interpret Galatians 5:4? In other words, if a person cannot lose their salvation, what else would Paul be trying to communicate to the Galatian believers in this passage?
- How does Paul’s tone change in verses 5 and 6?
- What was Paul being accused of, and how does he respond in verses 11-12?
- Verses 13 and 14 bring one caution to the use of our freedom, what is that?
I Corinthians 8:9 brings a similar concern to exercising our freedom.
Have you ever had to restrain from a “freedom” for the sake of a weaker brother? How does this relate to Galatians 5:14?
