BIG IDEA FOR SERMON SERIES: "How do we live in the Heavenly Wisdom of Christ that guards us from falling into the foolish seductive ways of this world and, prepares us for eternal glory?")

SCRIPTURES: Proverbs 1:1-7 (Prov. 9:10; 4:5-7; 1 Cor.1:31, 2:6-10; 3:19-20; Col.2:2-3; Eph.5:15-16

LIVING IN THE WORLD
1. What does your character reveal about the choices you made and our making?
2. Who or what secular ideologies or pressures of this age might be trying to lure you away from living obediently under the wisdom of God?

ABIDING IN THE WORD
1. Read the above Scriptures. How is God speaking to you through these verses?
2. How would you define wisdom?
(Pastor T's working definition: "The ability to know or discern the truth in what is right from wrong, good from evil, and, takes the right timely actions to bring a good and pleasing outcome as guided and willed by God."
Adrian Rogers: Wisdom is "the ability to see life from God's point of view."
3. When reading Proverbs 1:1-7 what is the purpose for wisdom?

GROWING IN THE WAY
1. How does one obtain true wisdom?
2. Do you have a reverent relationship with God? The FIRST STEP to gaining wisdom is FEARING THE LORD. What does this mean to you and your relationship with God?
3. By knowing who God truly is, our wise response is to draw closer to God, His Word, His Spirit, and in doing so, may this allow God to place His Heavenly Wisdom into our hearts that guide and counsels us in ways that has us live out our "heaven-on-earth" life.

"Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever." - Rom.11:33,36 Amen.

Blessings!
