Chapter Five, Lesson Two
STRENGTHENING THE BRETHREN Galatians 5:2-12 Print this Bible Study
** As Paul showed us our "Freedom in Christ", last week, we learned from him three steps that would help us to establish Christ honoring standards for our life. Do you recall those three steps?
** Did anyone get the opportunity to apply one or more of those steps to the make up of your everyday life?
** Having seen last time that we are to be cautious with our "Freedom in Christ" so we do not cause a weaker brother to stumble, Paul is now going to show us how to be a positive influence on our brothers. As we follow the account of Paul's interaction with the Galatians, we will learn the Christ-like skill of "Strengthening the Brethren". Please join me now in Galatians 5:2-12 as we learn this wonderful truth together.
