The Galatian saints began to turn away from the gospel. Paul writes to invite them back to the freedom of the gospel. In this Come, Follow Me FHE lesson, you will learn more about the Abrahamic Covenant and the “fruits of the spirit.”. Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
1. Teach me to walk in the light of his love;
Teach me to pray to my Father above;
Teach me to know of the things that are right;
Teach me, teach me to walk in the light.
2. Come, little child, and together we’ll learn
Of his commandments, that we may return
Home to his presence, to live in his sight—
Always, always to walk in the light.
3. Father in Heaven, we thank thee this day
For loving guidance to show us the way.
Grateful, we praise thee with songs of delight!
Gladly, gladly we’ll walk in the light.
Activity: Give each of the children a piece of paper and some crayons. Invite each of them to draw a picture of their favorite type of fruit. You can then have them share with everyone else why they like that type of fruit.

Share: Tell the children of an experience when you have been blessed by the “fruits of the spirit.”

FOR TEENS & ADULTS
Scripture: Read Galatians 3:7–9, 13–14, 27–29.

When we choose to be baptized we take upon us the name of Christ. It is through His atonement that we can receive the promised blessings of Abraham.

FOR SINGLE STUDY
There is peace, safety, and freedom in the gospel of Jesus Christ. Some may choose, like the Galatian Saints, to be led astray by false teachings. Read Galatians 5:1 and 2 Nephi 2:27. As you read these verses, ponder how the gospel of Jesus Christ makes you free. Consider watching this video on how you can show love to those who choose to turn away from the teachings of the gospel.
