Study Read Galatians 6:11-18
Observations? Questions? What was most interesting to you?
Respond: Scars aren’t just physical. We carry deep emotional/relational wounds as well.
Paul says the motive of the Judaizers was to “avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.” Discuss how we can have these same motives if we aren’t careful.
Paul says that he has learned to only boast in the cross of Jesus. What other things do we like to boast in? How do those things get in the way of boasting in Jesus?
Discuss how you can use your physical/emotional/relational scars to bring God glory/ Draw closer to Jesus.
Discuss how you can encourage each other to suffer intentionally for Jesus, or at least to take appropriate risks for the Gospel. What might that look like?
