First reading: Read Galatians 5. What word, phrase, or verse stands out to you? Does it bring up a question? Speak to a question you’ve been having? Just resonate somehow? Is it confusing? Disturbing? Comforting? Make a note of it.
For this study, encourage others in your group to come with their own questions for the chapter or the book as a whole. Here were mine:
What kind of freedom is Paul talking about?
In verses 2-6, what are the negative consequences of giving up this freedom and what are the positive consequences of maintaining it?
You’re probably familiar with this list of the fruits of the Spirit, but might not have realized Paul composed it in this context. Why here? What does it have to do with the issue at hand?
