Sermon Title: Walking In Wisdom

Scripture: Proverbs 2:1–6

 

This week, Pastor David shared a message from Proverbs, concluding the sermon series, “Walking In God’s Will.” Specifically, we looked at:

 

1.   The Nature Of Wisdom

 

2.   Walking In Wisdom

 

A.  Seek His Way Through His Word (v. 1)

B.  Seek His Way In Prayer (v. 3)

C.  Seek His Way In Community (v. 2)

 

Going Deeper:

 

1.  Pastor David defined wisdom as taking the knowledge of God and applying it to your life in a way that honors God. In light of this definition of wisdom, what needs to change in your life?

 

2.  How does submitting to the word of God transform you? How does it shape you to look, talk, and think more like Jesus? What Scripture(s) are shaping you right now?

 

3.  Pastor David shared that we often do not have wisdom because we don’t ask for it. When are you tempted to make decisions without praying first? What reminders can you give yourself to pray regularly throughout your day? What would your day look like if you framed it in an open-handed posture of prayer?

 

4. In conclusion this morning, Pastor David shared that the question isn’t Does God desire to lead you?; the real question is Do you desire to be led? Explain your answer.

Romans 12:1–2

 

“Your nature is a hard thing to change; it takes time…The spiritual life is the slow reworking and rebooting the computer at regular intervals, reading the small print of the service manual. It has slowly rebuilt me in a better image. It has taken years, though, and it is not over yet.” ~ Bono

 

James 1:5–8

 

Proverbs 11:14

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. ~ Ephesians 3:20–21
