Galatians, Chapter Two, Lesson One

AVOIDING COMPROMISE   Galatians 2:1-10             Download this Bible Study

STIMULATE

** As we concluded chapter one of Paul's letter to the Galatians last week, we learned about "The Leading of God". We saw that we can go forth knowing that it is God Himself that is determining the events of our daily travels and setting the Divine appointments for us to share His gospel truth with others. How has that impacted your daily walk with Him?

It has made me more aware of the importance of living each day for my gracious Lord. I know that He wants me to live for Him (Romans 12:1-2) and to proclaim His truth with my words and lifestyle.

MOTIVATE

** As we begin chapter two of this wonderful epistle, we should remember what the writer of Hebrews said in Hebrews 13:7, "Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith." Today Paul is going to give us the first of three behavioral patterns delineated in this chapter. Over the next three weeks, we should make every effort to imitate this man of God as he is;

1) AVOIDING COMPROMISE - Verses 1-10
2) AGGRESSIVELY CONFRONTING - Verses 11-16
3) ADVOCATING CHRIST - Verses 17-21

Please join me in Galatians 2:1-10, and let's learn together the three principles that the apostle Paul teaches us while he is "Avoiding Compromise".

Read passage (V. 1-3) (V. 4-6) (V. 7-10)

Opening Prayer

Avoiding Compromise

INVESTIGATE

V. 1 ** Where does Paul's 14 year interval begin?

This is a difficult question to answer, if not impossible. Although commentators have debated this issue for years, ultimately we cannot know the answer. (See Paul's timeline from our study in Galatians 1:11-17)
