Lesson 13: February 26, 2017

Christ Creates Holy Living: Galatians 5:18 – 6:10


Teaching Strategy: Examine the qualities of being Paul names as “fruits of the Spirit.” Identify evidence of each of these spiritual fruits as you experience them at work in the Body of Christ. Further consider the impact Christians might have in the world if we more fully exemplified the fruits of the Spirit in our lives.

Do a spiritual audit of your worshipping community, your school, or your place of employment.  When have you seen love? Joy? Peace? Patience? Kindness? Generosity? Faithfulness? Gentleness? Self-control? Share these stories with one another and then give thanks for the Spirit at work in your lives. 


Winter 2016-17 Theme: Creation

Unifying Principle: Many people reduce their religious obligations to fulfilling a set of legalistic requirements. What are the characteristics of an authentic Christian lifestyle? Paul sharply contrasts a Spirit-filled life with life in the flesh.
