STIMULATE

** From our study last time, how would you describe the person of Paul before he met Jesus Christ?

He was:
1) Hateful
2) Violent
3) Self-righteous
4) A murderer
5) Fooled by the traditions of men

** How much of that dreadful past was effective in disqualifying Paul from serving the Lord?

None of it! When he placed his faith in Jesus Christ, he became a new creature.
(2Corinthians 5:17)

** With that in mind, how have you done this week in remaining committed to serve the Lord? Have you been thankful to Him for removing your sin from you as far as the east is from the west? (Psalm 103:12)

Absolutely yes! We must hold fast to our calling to serve the Lord, we must proclaim His forgiveness of our sin and bring glory to His name.

MOTIVATE

** Once we have responded to the effectual call of God in Christ Jesus, does He lead us through the events of our life as we strive to serve Him? We will learn the answer to that question as we finish chapter one in Paul's letter to the Galatians. Please join me there for our study entitled, "The Leading of God". (Verses 18-24)

The Leading of God

INVESTIGATE

V.18 ** Do you recall from last week where this three year period began and how Paul spent it?

It began at his conversion (Acts 9:15). Paul spent the majority of that time in the Arabian wilderness with Jesus Christ. cf. Acts 9:16 He then returned to Damascus for a relatively brief stay before leaving for Jerusalem. All see - Acts 9:19-22
