Galatians 5:1-6 Free at Last Summary: We talk about freedom a lot in our world, especially in America. But there is a different kind of freedom that Jesus wants you to have. It is a freedom from the burden of trying to save yourself by keeping God’s law. God wants you to be free from that! How? We live by faith in Jesus, and stop trying to earn our place with Him. Think about it: Outline: 1. Stand for true freedom 2. Falling from grace 3. Wait for our eternal hope Verse: Galatians 5:13–14 (ESV): For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. Discussion Questions: 1. What does Paul mean when he says “for freedom Christ has set us free?” What type of freedom is he speaking of here? What is the slavery he warns against? 2. Paul tell us that if we try to be acceptable to God by the law (he speaks of obeying the laws of circumcision), then we are “obligated to keep the whole law.” Why is this? What “laws” are often set up in your own mind for how you can be acceptable to God? How might you place such obligations of law on others? 3. What does Paul mean by the phrase “faith working through love” in verse 6? How is this opposed to salvation by works? How does this help us understand the proper place of works in our relationship with God?
