Galatians, Chapter Five, Lesson One

FREEDOM IN CHRIST   Galatians 5:1             Download this Bible Study


** At the close of chapter four, we saw that the new covenant "in Christ's blood" had a profound impact on our lives in two areas. They were:

1) Being thankful always (An attitude of gratitude)
2) Being eager to share the gospel with others

How has the Lord touched your heart over this past week in either of these areas?

My own heart has been encouraged by remembering the gratitude I need to put on display before others, no matter what the circumstances might be in each new day that the Lord allows me to live for His name sake.


** As Paul's letter to the Galatians has been slowly unfolding before us, we have seen the devastating impact of legalism. That begs the question, "What is Christian liberty and how does it impact our past, present and future joy of living for Jesus Christ?" For the marvelous answer, please join me now in Galatians 5:1 as Paul addresses all three aspects of our joy in a single verse.

Read Passage (V. 1)

Opening Prayer

Freedom in Christ


V. 1 ** Our verse for today says "that Christ set us free". From the perspective of looking back to our past life without Christ, from what kind of things have we been set free?

We have been set free from:

Sin - Romans 6:16-18
Guilt - Hebrews 10:19-22
The wrath of God - Romans 5:1, Hebrews 10:26-27
The dominance of Satan - 2Timothy 2:24-26, Hebrews 2:14
