Studying the Truths of the New Testament | 03
The discipline of study involves engaging God’s Word which is declared to be profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Read or listen to Galatians 3:28–4:7.
There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male and female; since you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, heirs according to the promise.
Now I say that as long as the heir is a child, he differs in no way from a slave, though he is the owner of everything. Instead, he is under guardians and trustees until the time set by his father. In the same way we also, when we were children, were in slavery under the elements of the world. When the time came to completion, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba, Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then God has made you an heir.
What does it mean to have been clothed with Christ? What are the implications of all those in Christ being co-heirs with Christ regardless of ethnicity, gender, status, etc? Why do you think it has been so hard for the church to live as “one in Christ”?
The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.
In addition to our mentors from the Bible, our siblings in Christ also serve as guides in our journey of growth in knowledge of the Lord.
Watch this video. What is one aspect of this week’s topic you will seek to study, reflect on, and pray over this week?
Lord, forgive your church for the ways we have mistreated so many of your image-bearers, including so many women. Help us see the pain of those around us, and be prepared to enter into that pain of those who have been hurt.
