ADAPT it! Teaching Approach 4 TH Quarter 2011, THE GOSPEL IN GALATIANS Adult Sabbath School Lesson PowerPoint Presentation December 17, 2011 LIVING BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
LIVING IN STEP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT T HE INDWELLING OF THE H OLY S PIRIT ENABLES US TO LIVE A G OD - HONORING LIFE
Memory Verse GALATIANS 5:16 “So I say, live by the Holy Spirit’s power. Then you will not do what your sinful nature wants you to do.”
SPIRIT - LED LIFE STEPS WE NEED TO MAKE Walk in the Spirit Allow the Spirit to lead us every day
Walking in the Spirit A. Read Galatians 5:16. How is the idea of “walking” in Galatians 5:16 connected with a life of faith? “Walking” is a metaphor that explains the way a person should behave. Christianity was not just a set of beliefs that centered on Jesus. It also was a “way” of life to be “walked.” A “WAY” OF LIFE TO BE “WALKED.” REACT: To walk in the Spirit means to “constantly think about Christ.” How many of your thoughts actually involve your Savior?
Walking in the Spirit B. In what way is Paul’s metaphor about walking different from that found in the Old Testament? “Paul is not opposed to the law or to obedience to the law. Instead, he is opposed to how some were trying to obey the law. The true obedience that God desires never can be gained by force. IT IS DONE ONLY THROUGH THE DESIRE TO SERVE GOD FAITHFULLY WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT’S LEADING
Inner Struggle A. Why is there such an internal struggle between our inborn desires to serve ourselves and the Spirit’s promptings, and how do we find relief from this conflict? Galatians 5:17? The believer has two natures that are at war with each other, the flesh and the Spirit. The spiritual part of us desires what is spiritual and hates the flesh.
Our Only Hope The only hope we have of victory over the flesh is by making a daily decision to choose the Spirit against the desires of our sinful selves
Leading of the Spirit B. In what ways does obedience to the Ten Commandments show the fruit of the Spirit, which Paul lists in Galatians 5:22–24? The Ten Commandments are not something we can choose instead of or in place of love. They help guide us in how we are to show love, both to God and to humans.
Leading of the Spirit C. According to Galatians 5:16–26, what is the key to living a life in which the Spirit rules over the flesh? “walk” in the Spirit “to be led” “to live” We crucify the flesh by feeding our spiritual lives and by starving the desires of the flesh.
“Living by the Spirit implies a daily walk along the path that the Spirit dictates”.
SUMMARY WE CAN LIVE A SPIRIT-LED LIFE BY Walking in the Spirit Allowing the Spirit to lead us every day
