Sermons about Wisdom
This sermon looks at our relationship with the lost world
We are all a product of the culture we grow up in to some extent. The Corinthians were also a product of their culture. Though they had been called by God and put their faith in Christ, yet they were still "enamored with the philosophical sophistry of their Greek culture."1 The word "sophistry" comes from the Greek word sophia, which means "wisdom." The culture in Corinth placed a high value on what 1 Corinthians 1:17 refers to as the "wisdom of words."
Following God's will and wisdom saves us from a foolish life.
How ought we to think about living among our neighbors? Does God care about community harmony and prosperity? Hear from Proverbs 11 God's wisdom for city living: practicing honesty, understanding, and discretion for the common good.
1. Every believer is called to WALK IN LOVE, while rejecting its counterfeit 2. Every believer is called to WALK AS LIGHT, while exposing darkness 3. Every believer is called to WALK BY WISDOM, while avoiding foolishness
Living in this world is hard! There is so much worldly temptation that we can get sucked into living like the unbelieving world around us. Thankfully Paul’s words are true – God gives us access to the mind of Christ so that we can live Christ-honoring lives in a sin stained world.
No matter how dark this world gets, there is another home in Heave. Jesus is Eternal.
