What a powerful set of verses we have had in this week’s readings. Once again, Paul powerfully promotes the gospel of grace. He leaves no doubt about that he believes the people are in grave danger of leaving grace. Let’s review.

Galatians 5:7-12

According to verses 7-8, will Jesus ever lead someone away from the gospel of grace?

Verse 9 - what did you find that this verse means?

Paul has had to refer to the ritual of circumcision time after time. Recall, these false teachers were telling Gentile males, you have to become Jewish in order to really be a Christian. Inn very blunt language, Paul tells the false teachers and those following them, if circumcision shows you are righteous, then why stop there, mutilate yourself completely. His point is, works of the flesh don’t save!

Galatians 5:13-15

We are free from self dependence to save us. Yet, according to verse 13, what is a danger of grace?

While people may misuse grace to sin and treat other’s harshly, Paul says, “No, grace is not an excuse to sin.”

From verse 14-15, it would certainly appear that people were not being loving toward one another and claiming grace allows them to do so. Paul rebukes this mindset. Think about this, there is one thing the law and grace agree on - love your neighbor.

Read verse 15 - Paul is speaking to the church members. How sad when people in the body of Christ seek to destroy another believer by harsh words and attacks. This verse should cause us to repent and remember the call to love and overlook one another’s faults. Churches are normally not destroyed by outside forces, but inwardly. As a member of the body of Christ, do you promote peace or division?

Galatians 5:16-21

In these verses, what are 2 truths about the flesh? 2 truths about the Spirit?

See how the words are framed - the “works” of the flesh. The list shows us what our sinful nature is good at - sin. In verse 19-21 - Do you find yourself condemning some of these sins in others and not so concerned about those you may struggle with?

A key phrase in verse 22 is, “those who practice such things.” What is the difference between practicing sin and stumbling over a sin?

Would you agree with this statement? Why or why not? A follower of Christ may commit any of these sins, but will experience conviction and not want to stay in the sin.

There is much more to unpack in these verses. I would encourage you to go to Guzic’s commentary for more detail on these verses. Here is the link: enduringword.com/bible-commentary/galatians-5/
