Week 4: Grace that Forms


Key Verses

My little children, I’m going through labor pains again until Christ is formed in you.  — Galatians 4:19  (CEB) 

Key Concept

Through Jesus Christ, born to redeem those under the law, we receive the gift of adoption and we are formed by the Spirit as children of God.

  • Bible Study Overview and Discussion Questions: Small groups are invited to read a short overview of Galatians 4 and discuss these questions as they reflect on “Grace that Forms.”
