Sermon Description

The passage paints a portrait of folly with three examples - the speculator, the sluggard, and the scoundrel. The picture gets progressively worse with each, but the common problem is that all three lack a biblical work ethic. The point is not to follow in their steps.

Sermon Description

Building on the imagery of two paths, Proverbs 5 introduces us to two women – the forbidden woman and the wife of your youth. The main idea is that women and wisdom should be pursued passionately and loved exclusively. To put it another way, keeping on the way of wisdom means avoiding the path of promiscuity.

Sermon Description

Getting wisdom is not the pursuit of novel ideas. It is a process of continual recollection and recommitment to the familiar truths passed down to you. The acquisition of wisdom is not about blazing new paths. It’s about keeping to the old roads, well-trodden by the wise.

Sermon Description

The Bible teaches that generosity to the poor is both a duty and a description of God’s people. And since it says the poor will always be with us, that means we have perpetual responsibility in our hands. The book of Proverbs addresses this responsibility and lays forth both blessings and curses depending on how we respond.

Sermon Description

We know we need wisdom, but we’re not sure how to get it. It seemed like Solomon trusted God, prayed for it, and suddenly became wise. But Proverbs teaches that wisdom is a learned skill for navigating the uncertainties of life – not a spiritually downloaded set of instructions for what to do in every situation.

Sermon Description

As we begin a new series in Proverbs, it is important that we understand the nature of proverbs and how they are to be read and applied to life. At the same time, we want to introduce the author, King Solomon, and explore what makes him qualified to write such a book.

Sermon Description

Why did you come into this world? That’s actually a ridiculous question to ask any of us. None of us had a particular purpose. None of us had a say in the matter. We were just born. It just happened to us. But Jesus is different. Like us, he was born. But unlike us, he decided to come into this world. He had a purpose. This purpose is addressed in our text under two broad categories: consolation and confrontation.

Sermon Description

Throughout Paul’s letter to the Colossians, he has woven the common thread of the gospel, which holds everything in the church together. All the relationships between Jew and Gentile, slave and free, husband and wife, parent and child – are all transformed and tied by the gospel. Now Paul concludes by exhorting the church to maintain a clear and compelling gospel witness to the outside world.

Sermon Description

How do people change? How do you stop bad habits and sinful tendencies? How do you become a better person? In our text, it sounds as simple as taking off an old shirt and putting on a new one. But there’s more to it. Something first has to be killed. The process of gospel change involves something you do – but something first must be done to you.

Sermon Description

What is a Christian? Some would say a moral person. Others a religious person. Paul would say a Christian is most fundamentally a resurrected person. In Colossians 3, the Apostle plans to draw out practical implications of his theology of Christ from earlier chapters. But he begins with a reminder of the Christian’s identity rooted in Christ.
