MONDAY, June 29, 2009 In Galatians 5:16-18, Paul describes the conflict between our old sinful nature (which, though dead, is still kicking) and our new spiritual nature we received when we accepted Christ as Savior and Lord. Begin filling in the chart on the back of this sheet with information about the two natures. (You should be able to complete the top three rows.) TUESDAY, June 30, 2009 filling in the first column of the chart. Read Galatians 5:19-21 and finish

FRIDAY, July 3, 2009 In contrast to the acts of the sinful nature, Paul lists in Galatians 5:22-26 the fruit of the Spirit. Look at that list again and write in the space below the qualities on that list that would enable church members to avoid relationship problems:

WEDNESDAY, July 1, 2009 Read Galatians 5:22-26 and finish filling in the second column of the chart. THURSDAY, July 2, 2009 Relationship problems within a church’s membership are the result of sin. Read again Galatians 5:19-21, where Paul lists several acts of the sinful nature. List here the ones that sometimes cause relationship problems in a church:

SATURDAY, July 4, 2009 Here’s a case study for you. Read in 1 Corinthians 1:10-12 about a fellowship problem in the church at Corinth. Which “sinful nature” acts and attitudes were the source of the problem? Which “fruits of the Spirit” could be the solution to the problem?

SUNDAY, July 5, 2009 Putting Christ and others ahead of ourselves is a key to harmony in the church. Read Philippians 2:1-4. Is their a fellowship problem in your own church? What “sinful nature” acts and attitudes are the source of the problem? What “fruits of the Spirit” could be the solution to the problem? What steps will you personally take?

Subtract your total for the first group from your total for the second group. The maximum positive score is 27. The maximum negative score is -45. Where are you on this scale? Acts of the sinful nature
-45 -35 -25 -15 -5 0

Look back over how you rated yourself. Reflect on the behaviors that need to come out of your life and the qualities that need to come into your life. Spend some time in silent prayer. ! Allow 5-10 minutes for members to complete the form and spend time alone in reflection and prayer.

Galatians 5:16-26
July 5, 2009

Wrapping It Up
! Remind the class that none of us is perfect and we all have room for improvement in our spiritual lives. ! Lead them in a closing prayer of thanksgiving for what the Spirit has already done in transforming them and commitment to give Him greater control over their lives.

HOW TO USE TEACHER’S TOOLBOX: Make a four-page folded teacher’s leaflet from the first two sheets by printing two-sided (or by putting the blank sides together). The other two sheets are for duplicating, displaying, distributing, or otherwise using as called for in the lesson plan.

Getting Started
Stick figures ! On the chalkboard, draw two stick figures. On one, add wings and a halo. On the other, add horns and a tail. Ask the class what these two figures symbolize. They may say "angel" and "demon" or give some similar answer. ! What if I were to tell you that both of these are you? Then what would they symbolize? Wait for responses, which will probably indicate that the stick figures symbolize the old nature and the new nature. ! Today we are going to see how Paul contrasted the kind of life we live on our own and the kind of life we live by the power of the Holy Spirit within us.

Exploring God's Word
Choral reading ! Give each person a copy of the following (duplicate Item 1). Appoint persons to be Readers 1, 2,

and 3. Designate half the class as Group 1 and the other half as Group 2. Point out the lines to be read by All.

the lives of individual Christians? " How do you explain the existence of some of the qualities described as "fruit of the Spirit" in the lives of unbelievers? " How can you tell whether or not a person is a Christian? " How do we who belong to Christ Jesus go about crucifying the sinful nature with its passions and desires (verse 24)? " What is the difference between living by the Spirit and keeping in step with the Spirit (verse 25)? " Why is verse 26 an appropriate word of warning for those who have the fruit of the Spirit?
