Worship, Wisdom and Women

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: 1 Kings 3

Key Verse: 1 Kings 3:7-9 7 ‘Now, Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties. 8 Your servant is here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. 9 So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?’

Last week we saw from psalm 27 that the one thing that David sought after was to know God and live his life before God’s presence. At the beginning of King Solomon’s reign we also see how he answers this question when God approaches him, in a dream, ‘Ask for whatever you want me to give you.’ King Solomon saw his weakness and so asked that God might ‘give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?’

In this life we need wisdom to judge between truth & error, good & evil. The Bible tells us that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom because when we fear Him we will listen and obey His word, resulting in eternal life.In this life we need wisdom to judge between truth & error, good & evil.

Growing Pains

Rosskeen Free Church Sermons

Reading: James 1:1-12

Key Verse: James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Godly wisdom is called for to enable us to face trials with joy.

As humans we naturally are earth bound in our perspective. However we are to get our thinking in line with God’s thinking. God’s Word calls upon us to have such an attitude of life such that we can have joy in our unhappy trails because we can see beyond them the good that God is working in us through the trails.

This attitude calls for true wisdom which is from God, who is willing and able to give to those who really desire it.
