Galatians, Chapter Six, Lesson Two

SPIRITUAL REAPING   Galatians 6:6-10             Print this Bible Study

STIMULATE

** What a joy it is to have our life be directed by the Holy Spirit! Living under His control produces His fruit in our life and makes us available for serving the Lord each day. What was the ministry opportunity that we learned about during our last study?

"Spiritual Restoration" - When we find a brother or sister in Christ that has given in to a "trespass" and become entangled or caught by it, we have the privilege of restoring them to the Lord through the instruction of His word.

** When we have an opportunity to "restore such a one", what was to be the manner in which we do that?

"...in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, lest you too be tempted." Remember that humility is the call of the day! We do not compare ourselves to the sinning brother and then pronounce ourselves to be good by virtue of that comparison.

MOTIVATE

** Paul desperately wants us to live our life under the control of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:16 & 25). We have seen that if we do that we will have a positive impact on others, but what will be the impact upon our own life? Do our thoughts and actions have any relationship to the outcome of our life? For the alarming answer, please join me once again in Paul's letter to the Galatians. This time in chapter six, verses 6-10 where we are going to learn the benefit of "Spiritual Reaping".

Opening Prayer

Spiritual Reaping

INVESTIGATE

V. 6 ** As we open our study for today, would someone like to set the general context of this passage? First, the letter to the Galatians as a whole and then where Paul is at by this point in his letter.

Paul was writing to the churches throughout the region of Galatia to correct Judaizers' message of salvation by works, and now has just finished encouraging the "spiritual" Christians to restore in a spirit of gentleness, any brother who has been caught up in a trespass.
