Pneumatics: People of the Spirit
A line of thought for today's lesson:
Read Gal 6:1-5
Teaching Point: "you who are spiritual" is the word "Pneumatics" in the Greek. It's more of a title than a description.
Q. Who is most of this passage focusing upon: The fallen one or the reconcilers? (reconcilers) Why? (get opinions)
Q. What are the directives given to reconcilers? Why?
Q. Who are the Pneumatics: the fallen or the reconcilers? (both, this is a model for reconciling a fallen brother/sister - a fellow pneumatic).
Q. Vs 1 finishes with two maxims: "Watch Yourself" / "Don't you be tempted" - Paul switches, mid verse from plural (brothers) to singular (yourself). Why?
Q. How does a "Spirit Person" (Pneumatic) spend their days on Earth? Why? (reflecting and reducing my pride to help others follow Christ - and expecting help from fellow "pneumatics" when I fall to temptation.)
Q. What is the benefit of carrying each others burden? (lifts the struggler, humbles the helper - it levels the field)
Q. In this passage, what seems to be more dangerous in the church: a fallen Pneumatic or a prideful Pneumatic? How so?
Q. As a pneumatic, how does this passage direct your focus for today and tomorrow? How does it give you encouragement?
Illustration: A Humble Church
While this is a different form of reconciliation (public repentance of a group to the greater body of believers) it speaks volumes of the kind of church we become as we put Christ first, fellow pneumatics second and self third.
