Okay, I’ve been eager to share this Galatians study guide with you since September! Letter from Paul answers questions about the purpose of Galatians. It also sheds light on the Galatian Church problems, shared by too many churches today!
I thoroughly enjoyed this Galatians study guide. The combination of a fictional introductory story, the study, and then some pointed questions to help apply everything.

Draw closer to God. Revel in the knowledge that you are saved by grace, not works. Discover how Paul addressed the Galatian people when they veered from the truth back into bondage to the rules and customs of their time.
This Bible study takes you verse by verse through the book of Galatians, with insights into what occurred so many years ago yet is still relevant today. Bringing home the truth that we don’t have to perform a certain way to be accepted as heirs to Christ, Letter from Paul offers relief to those who feel pressured to live by the world’s standards.
You will be refreshed and renewed as you lean into the fact that God loves you just as you are. Yes, He has given us the commandments, but He doesn’t pile additional rules on us that we can’t possibly follow. Instead, He gives us grace. And mercy. And love.
“Galatians is about the difference between salvation by works and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. It is not about obeying all the rules versus having a good time. It is about a personal relationship with our Creator and Savior.” – Mary Weins

I Loved This Galatians Study Guide!
From chapter one of this Galatians Study Guide, Letter from Paul, I was hooked. The style of story-telling, setting the truth of scripture to a modern scenario brings everything into sharper focus.
Then, the Bible study portion does a remarkable job of breaking things down and making them understandable.
There are 2 categories of question, Study, and Personal Application. And they are good!
Now, I’ve known “We are not under Law but under Grace” (Romans 6:14-15) for many years. For some reason (maybe because I’ve been studying more about God’s grace and favor recently) the Personal application question “Are you under the law or under Grace?” hit me differently this time.
I ended up doing a word study and really grew in my understanding. Not that I thought I had ‘permission to sin’ but I didn’t grasp what God’s Grace really means in this context.
Each week got my brain going, my heart involved, and drew me closer to God. I must say this Galatians study guide, Letters to Paul, is fantastic!
She now wanted to live a righteous life-not because she had to, but because she knew she had a loving father who had forgiven her sins and would not hold them against her in the future.
Samantha realized that Christ hadn’t just died for the sins of the world, he’d died for her sins personally. God would guide and direct her path, and give her joy and peace within. For these reasons she now wanted to serve him.Letter from Paul, Week 1, Short story
The question arose that, since Grace saves us, is it okay to sin? NO. We are saved by Grace, we obey in love.Letter from Paul, Week 1 Bible Study
I would recommend the Galatians study guide ‘Letter from Paul’ to anyone who struggles with legalism, understanding grace, and wanting to learn how Christians are meant to one-another through life.

Letter from Paul: to the Church in Galatia…and Us!
As a preacher’s kid, I was brought up in a strict, structured home environment. This upbringing created a harsh view of Christianity and an overwhelming fear of hell, fire, and damnation for me.
It was not until years later that I found a church emphasizing God’s love. I read the Word and prayed daily and began to develop a close, personal relationship with God. But fear kept haunting me until I really got into Galatians and broke it down, verse by verse. The book of Galatians is a crucial book of the Bible for me because it emphasizes God’s love and forgiveness and provides assurance that, even though I mess up at times, God still loves me!
Embrace the Message
It is my hope and prayer that you, too, can embrace the beautiful message of love and acceptance contained in Galatians and apply it to your life. When we fully submit and trust God for our lives, an overwhelming peace envelops us. We no longer need to fear Him. He is a loving God who provides all our needs and protects, encourages, comforts, and directs us. He is our heavenly Father, our constant companion, and a friend who really does have all the right answers.
Living in a right relationship with God dramatically changes the way we view ourselves and the world. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Cor. 5:17 KJV).
Highlights and Hope
Written in a down-to-earth, easy-to-read approach, the Bible studies contained in Letter from Paul highlight the main points covered in each chapter of Galatians.
It is my hope and prayer that this book will erase the doubts and fears of Christians who question their salvation or fear that they are not good enough to maintain it and to point the way for the unsaved to realize how easy it is to become a child of God.
