Walk in Will of God



Paul prays that church people in Colossae would know the will of God so that they would walk worthy, fully pleasing to Him. Then Paul proceeds to prayerfully describe what God wills for His people to be walking worthy looks like. It is to realize that we cannot, but He can through us. And to be give thanks for what the Father in Christ has already done for us.

Continue in Prayer



Paul encourages the believers in this little church of a town he never visited to pray like their lives depend on it. Like the city guard, be vigilant in praying with copious amounts of thanksgiving. Then Paul gives them two areas to be praying – pray for the missionary team and pray for themselves to be missionaries where they live to those outside the kingdom of Christ.

Wisdom for That Day



The teacher of Ecclesiastes has revealed that to live for the things “under the sun” is like smoke – unpredictable and unsubstantial. His summary wisdom is to live today with one day in mind. One day, our bodies will die and our spirits will be recalled to the Creator for an accounting and judgment. Live wisely today because that day is inevitable. The wisest choice is to trust in Christ, who is Wisdom personified. His perfect righteousness is our only hope for the day of judgment.

Trust God’s Way



What bears the weight of your life? Where are you leaning your life? Jesus said the wise man placed the burden of his life on Jesus’s teachings. Solomon wisely agrees in Proverbs 3. Lean not on your own understandings but to trust in the LORD with all your heart.

Wise to ask for wisdom



Wisdom series applied.  Our wisdom series moves from David to Solomon, the man famous for wisdom.
Arguably, the smartest thing Solomon ever did was ask for wisdom. So we will spend a few minutes seeing what attitudes and thoughts led up to Solomon’s famous request for wisdom from God that changed his world.

The Need for Wisdom



Wisdom series applied. David choice to number the militias is problematic. Even his most capable general tactfully questioned the wisdom of doing it. As is often the case, David did not see the folly of his pride until after the deed was done. But to his credit, his heart condemned him before the consequences began to fall, and David repented. He threw himself upon the mercy of God to mitigate the fallout. But God was working something bigger than the immediate judgement. The LORD was bringing about the next step in the worship of the True God with determining the location of the temple and farther still, the atonement the Son of David would accomplish centuries later.

Who will you follow?



Psalm 2 builds on the foundation left by Psalm 1. In light of eternity, don’t be foolish and rebel against the Word of God. He has shown what the future holds. Don’t be on the wrong side of history. God wins. Always has and always will. Circumstances may deceived many to think that people can redefine good and evil. But the patience of God will one one day be done, and justice will come from heaven through the Son on earth. Be wise. Be ready for that day. The beginning of wisdom prepares us for the end. Love Him with rejoicing. One day, He will make all things right.

Where are you going?



Psalm 1 is a good place to start. The contrast is laid before us. The ways of the ungodly are easier to slide into than you think but the end is disaster. But the opposite is to delight in having relationship with the LORD through His Word and His Spirit. Which will you choose today?

Wisdom from above



The Bible has much to say about wisdom, including a warning that not all that looks like wisdom is truly wise in God’s eyes. Jesus is the embodiment of true wisdom, wiser than Solomon. James gives us a tool for determining whether we are seeking true wisdom from above or settling for what the world calls wise, which will make a fool out of us.

Gospel of Relentless God



Acts 13 records for us a transition in the story. The focus is shifting from Peter and those apostles to Paul as an apostle of Christ to the Gentiles. And thus Luke gives us the first sample of Paul’s sermon, given in the synagogue of Antioch in Pisidia.
Paul tells the story of the gospel. For the gospel is not simply a plan or a set of beliefs. The gospel is the person of Jesus the Messiah fulfilling the story of a relentless God to rescue His people.
