Pastor Post - September 13, 2017
This Sunday we will launch into a new journey in God’s Word as we begin a six week series in the book of Proverbs.
We are calling it, “The Way of Wisdom: A Study of Proverbs.” I am super excited about leading us through some of the primary themes of this incredibly valuable book.
This Sunday I will introduce things by talking about the title, the goals, and the theme of Proverbs, all of which we find in Proverbs 1:1-7.
- What do you think of when you think of a “proverb?” What are the differences between modern proverbs and biblical proverbs?
- Take a look at verses 2-6 of Proverbs 1. What are the primary goals of the book that you see there?
- Take a close look at verse 7. In a way, it encapsulates the whole book. What is “the fear of the Lord?” What does it mean to “despise” wisdom and instruction?
Be praying for God to bless our study over the next six weeks with the power of the Holy Spirit.
It is really wonderful to experience what God is doing in the life of our church. We are seeing people saved and baptized, and seeing believers come alive to God’s plan for their lives as disciples. Pray for the move of God’s Spirit to only increase, as we walk humbly with Jesus and with one another.
See you Sunday!
