To this point in Galatians, Paul has done much in the way of explaining the freedom available in the gospel and the condemnation present in the Law. But how do we get that freedom, especially those of us who don’t feel so “free?” What is it that we need to do in order to experience the fullness of the freedom Paul speaks of?
Which works of the “flesh” or sinful nature do you see in your life? If you are a believer, can you see how your two natures conflict?
Examine yourself. How can you see the fruit of the Spirit growing in your life? Do you have any natural characteristics that can be confused with this fruit?
Can you think of a specific time you knew you were being led by the Spirit? How do you know?
What is the difference between just doing the right thing and actually walking in the Spirit? Is there one? Explain.
