The Gospel Truth:
Because the source of the gospel is heavenly, not human,
we must not succumb to people pressure,
but willingly serve Christ and His Gospel.

Next Steps from Today’s Message
- I will consistently spend time in God’s Word so I know how to obey Him and not fall to peer pressure.
- I will determine to live as a “slave” bonded to Christ and resist the pressures of the world.
Home Church Questions
- Read Galatians 1:10-12.
- Is there anything that was new, memorable, or meaningful from this week’s message?
- Is there an immediate application you know you need to make?
- If you are given only one choice would you say you are you a people pleaser, or a rule follower? Give some examples. (e.g. Do you drive the speed limit, or stay with the flow of traffic even if others are exceedingthe speed limit?)
- When has peer pressure caused problems in your life and your walk with the Lord?
- What is the balance between not falling to peer pressure and not being self serving?
- How do you stay consistent in your time in the Word of God?
- What elements of the gospel message put us in conflict with the world?
