 Galatians



Hey guys,



We will continue the application of Galatians this week.   Read Gal 3 & 4. 

 After you read these chapters, review the following verses to highlight 

Paul’s message to the Galatians.   What is he revealing to the 

Galatians in these verses? A basic course in  the law sonship Gods will, Gods Grace Redemption Transformation

Gal 3:19
Galatians 3:19
19 aWhy the Law then? It was added 1because of transgressions, having been bordained through angels cby the 2agency of a mediator, until dthe seed would come to whom the promise had been made.

& Gal 3:24, 

Galatians 3:24


24 Therefore the Law has become our atutor to lead us to Christ, so that bwe may be justified by faith
why did God provide the Law?  See Gal 3:24 above, To lead us to Christ so that we may be justified by faith

Gal 3:26
Galatians 3:26
 26 For you are all asons of God through faith in bChrist Jesus.

 – How are we sons of God?   See Gal 3:26 above, We are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus

Gal 3:28
Galatians 3:28
 28 aThere is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is 1neither male nor female; for byou are all one in cChrist Jesus.

Gal 3:29

b
 – How do we belong to Christ and what is the benefit?    
We are of the seed of Abraham according to the promise

Now, go back and read 
Gal 3:23,
Galatians 3:23

23 But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, abeing shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed.
a
Where does our faith come from?   
God reveals it later, after we were kept in custody under the law

Think in terms of the following hierarchy;

God’s Will

God’s Grace then,

Redemption/Transformation



How do our actions apply to this process? We respond because we have the Spirit of His Son in our hearts crying Abba Father

Gal 4:6-7

Galatians 4:6–7

6 Because you are sons, aGod has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “bAbba! Father!”
7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and aif a son, then an heir 1through God.

I.e. through the gracious act of

Gal 4:8-9 
8 However at that time, awhen you did not know God, you were bslaves to cthose which by nature are no gods.
9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be aknown by God, bhow is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless 1celemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again?

Or rudimentary teachings or principles

 What do we turn back to the weak and worthless elemental things
 and what does that make us?  people who desire to be enslaved all over again

How does Gal 4:8-9 
There is a huge difference between being ignorant of God and slaves and being sons of God

compare to Gal 3:26?
Galatians 3:26
 26 For you are all asons of God through faith in bChrist Jesus.

Gal 4:16
Galatians 4:16
16 So have I become your enemy aby 1telling you the truth?
a

Or dealing truthfully with you



 – Do we have an enemy in truth?  see next line below
or is Paul our enemy by dealing truthfully with us? Let the reader answer based on his or her theological understanding of truth and of being dealt with truthfully. In my case the answer is no.
How important is understanding


 God’s truth for our lives?  What should we do with truth?  For ourselves and for others?



Finally, review Gal 4:21-31 

Galatians 4:21–31


Bond and Free
21 Tell me, you who want to be under law, do you not alisten to the law?
22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, aone by the bondwoman and bone by the free woman.
23 But athe son by the bondwoman 1was born according to the flesh, and bthe son by the free woman through the promise.
24 1aThis is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants: one proceeding from bMount Sinai bearing children 2who are to be cslaves; 3she is Hagar.
25 Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children.
26 But athe Jerusalem above is free; 1she is our mother.
27 For it is written,
aRejoicebarren woman who does not bear;
Break forth and shoutyou who are not in labor;
For more numerous are the children of the desolate
Than of the one who has a husband.”
28 And you brethren, alike Isaac, are bchildren of promise.
29 But as at that time ahe who was born according to the flesh bpersecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, cso it is now also.
30 But what does the Scripture say?
aCast out the bondwoman and her son,
For bthe son of the bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman.”

31 So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, 1but of the free woman.

and we’ll use the example to help understand 

works and faith in application to the discussion above.    Also, reflect on our 

discussion of King Saul…..how does his life apply?



Take your time reflecting on the story of Hagar Mount Sinai
 and Sarah Mount Zion
, write down your 

thoughts on similarities and differences….bring them with you for discussion. 
 30 But what does the Scripture say?
aCast out the bondwoman and her son,

For bthe son of the bondwoman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman.”

See you guys on Tuesday!



Grace and peace to you!
