Discussion Questions - Re-read our main passage from this week (Galatians 3:22-4:7) and then with your Growth Group, family, friends, etc. thoughtfully answer the following:

1. As you look back at childhood, what are rules you once thought were restrictive but are now grateful for?

2. Does understanding the Law’s role as a temporary guardian now mean we can ignore the Old Testament? Why or why not?

3. Why is Christian identity so important in our faith?

4. How does this passage help us understand the triune nature of God?

5. How does the trinity help us to understand the distinctions between the different social groups listed in Galatians 3:28?

6. In what ways do you struggle to grasp your identity as a child of God?

7. What’s your next step in response to this message?
