Grace for Your Day August 23

We all want to be wise, and occasionally we have those moments when we say something that sort of startles us, because it sounded wise. We may wonder, where did that come from? We didn’t think we had that in us, and we hope this is the start of something new.

Have you every wished that you would be more wise and that your words would always be filled with wisdom? Maybe you long to be more confident and persuasive in sharing the gospel with others or in teaching your children truths from the Bible. I think if we are honest most of us can relate. We all want to be wiser and to have our speech filled with wisdom.

This week’s sermon will focus on 1 Corinthians 2 where Paul addressed the Corinthians about how to speak with wisdom. Paul had came to Corinth and shepherded the saints through many sin issues that had crept into the church. He had just been to several other churches and those experiences weren’t that good. He was beaten, imprisoned, and run out of town. His reserves were low and yet he guides the Corinthians on how to be wise in their speech. He reminds them that the Holy Spirit is essential to being wise and speaking with wisdom.

I invite you to join us this Sunday as we study God’s word and learn how to depend on the Holy Spirit to be wise with our words.
