Walking in Maturity
Galatians 5:1-15
Our Text
Brothers, if anyone is caught in any
transgression, you who are spiritual should
restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch
on yourself, lest you too be tempted.
Galatians 6:1–10 2
Our Text
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the
law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is
something, when he is nothing, he deceives
himself. But let each one test his own work,
Galatians 6:1–10 3
Our Text
and then his reason to boast will be in himself
alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have
to bear his own load. Let the one who is taught
the word share all good things with the
Galatians 6:1–10 4
Our Text
one who teaches. Do not be deceived: God is
not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he
also reap. For the one who sows to his own
flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the
Galatians 6:1–10 5
Our Text
one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit
reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of
doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we
do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity,
Galatians 6:1–10 6

Editor's Notes

  1. Galatians 5:1-15
  2. Galatians 6:1–10 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.
  3. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work,
  4. and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load. Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the
  5. one who teaches. Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the
  6. one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity,
  7. let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
  8. Galatians 5:1-15
  9. Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep
  10. watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
  11. Transgression Restoration Examination Did you ever wonder why so much is written about church discipline? Matthew 13:24–30 (ESV) 24 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, 25 but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. 26 So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. 27 And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, “Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.” ’ ”
  12. Detected in some wrongdoing in imagery of one making a false step so as to lose footing: a violation of moral standards. a fault into which the brother is betrayed “unawares,” so that it is not intentionally wrong
  13. Galatians 5:19–21 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
  14. hating, making trouble, being jealous, being angry, being selfish, making people angry with each other, causing divisions among people, feeling envy. These are the ones that they are struggling with. These are unity stoppers, Spirit grieving works.
  15. Duty of the Mature Done carefully Be mindful of pride
  16. Keep watch on yourself!- while doing church discipline.
  17. Galatians 6:4 But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor.
  18. Attitude Motivation Obedience Gifting Edification Glory
  19. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
  20. Galatians 6:3 For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. Discover that for yourself
  21. Not the Safety Patrol Galatians 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Accountability- those struggling with the works of the flesh.
  22. Galatians 6:6 Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. Galatians 6:10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
  23. Explain bookends in scripture. Teacher teaches Catechism Recipients support Shares all good things Greek things that have value Do good Fellow Christian Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. What was Christ’s teaching about ministers of the word? 1 Corinthians 9:14 In the same way, the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel.
  24. This must be related to the bookended scriptures. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. Tom Wright the charismatic Anglican scholar puts it this way: People who think they can do without serious teaching and emerge unscathed as Jesus-followers are fooling themselves: God, he says, is not mocked. Just as with the general truth (if people suppose that their wickedness goes unobserved, they are in for a shock), so with the more specific point here: to put it crudely, you reap what you sow; in other words, you get what you pay for.
  25. False teachers- Judaizers and false teachers. Becoming Jews Careful teachers- Word first, clear teaching, Christ crucified 2 Timothy 4:1–4 (ESV) 1 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: 2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. 3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. “It is not important which teachers we listen to, Paul and his associates, or the teachers of the law.” Thus, they were already deceiving themselves, and leading themselves astray.
  26. Galatians 6:8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
  27. What the false teaching caused Desires- I want what I want Pride- Spiritual Legalism- Christ + tradition Division- taking sides Preferences- I think it should be this way (MY WAY) Corruption = death All false systems of religion are so adjusted that they appeal to the fallen nature of man, satisfying his religious instinct for worship, while at the same time allowing him to go on in his sin. The teachings of the Judaizers catered to the fallen natures of the Galatians in that they made no demand for the necessity of regeneration nor for faith in an atoning sacrifice that paid for sin. In addition to that, their teachings stressed a salvation-by-works religion, which glorifies man, not God, and which allows him to go on in his sin while seeking to buy the favor of God by his so-called good works.
  28. The product of wise teaching Benevolence- helping the poor Burden bearing- helping a weak brother Generosity – financially supporting ministry Doing good- Acts that are beneficial to others Loving Neighbor- as yourself Doing God’s call- the only reason Paul gives about good boasting Reward is eternal life
  29. Luke 12:16–21 (ESV) 16 And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man produced plentifully, 17 and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 18 And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.” ’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ 21 So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”
  30. Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
  31. Good acts inspired by good teaching Moving towards maturity Matthew 9:37–38 (ESV) 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” You use your resources to further God’s kingdom
  32. Galatians 6:10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. Charity begins at home
  33. We need to move towards maturity. Address wrongs rightly Support the ministry Do good
  34. Prayer Communion
