Galatians, Chapter Five, Lesson Two

STRENGTHENING THE BRETHREN            Page 6

EXTRICATE

** In today's passage, we were able to observe the apostle Paul as he was "Strengthening the Brethren" in three different ways. Can you find them?

1) He warns them - V. 2, 3 and 9

2) He encourages them - V. 5, 7 and 10

3) He protects them - V. 8, 10 and 12

DELINEATE

** What was the one phrase in our passage today that would protects us from false teaching, and about which Paul had great confidence in the Galatians?

V.10 - "...that you will adopt no other view..."

Paul is telling us to hold tight to the truth of God's precious word, while refusing to adopt the heresy which stems from the doctrines of demons. cf. 1Timothy 6:20

EVALUATE

** While it has been good to see Paul strengthen the faith of the Galatians, is it really a job for me to do for my brothers and sisters in the faith? What am I supposed to do, once I have been strengthened with the word of God?

Let's close our study for today by looking at a passage together that will answer that question for us. Please turn to Luke 22:31-32. Read passage.

Clearly, when we have been strengthened by the Lord with His word, through His Spirit, we are to become as those who are "Strengthening the Brethren".

ACTIVATE

** Lord, please help me to stand up for You and to know Your word that I might strengthen my Christian brothers and sisters for Your name sake.
