Title: Keys to Wisdom, Part 2

Theme: Grasping the Wisdom of God

“Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost you all you have, get understanding. Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.” (Proverbs 4:7-8) “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” (James 1:22)

If Christians would but just take heed to the Biblical principles in seeking God’s perfect will for them and grasp the truths found in today’s message. The church would be seen as a people of God who knows, understands and walks in the wisdom of God.

We serve a God who has resources that never run out. One of those resources that are available to all Christians is wisdom. James wrote, “If any of you should lack wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5) The child of God needs only to ask and then live according to the written Word of God and he can enjoy the benefits of “Walking in the Wisdom of God.”

Proverbs 4:7-8 says, “Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.” James the half brother of Jesus gives us some practical advice and we read it in James 1:22, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

I would propose to you that if Christians would but just take heed to the Biblical principles in seeking God’s perfect will for them and grasp the truths found in today’s message. The church would be seen as a people of God who knows, understands and walks in the wisdom of God.

Just what is in the heart of those who enjoy the benefits of Godly wisdom?

Over the last few weeks we have been discussing the practical ways of seeking and applying the wisdom of God. The Christian who takes Jesus seriously has studied and he has discovered that there are four basic disciplines to making the two master disciplines of hearing and doing a practical part of his Christian walk. They are 1.) Attention. 2.) Meditation. 3.) Obedience and 4.) Endurance. We have already looked at “Attention and Meditation,” today we will come to understand “Obedience and Endurance.” The basic disciplines of “Attention and Meditation” are needed before we can lay down a foundation for wisdom. The basic disciplines of “Obedience and Endurance” are needed so we can express a life of walking in the counsel and wisdom of God.

Every Christian needs the “Basic Discipline of Obedience.”

Every Christian needs the “Basic Discipline of Obedience.” In order to enjoy that abundant life promised in Christ we need not only to seek the wisdom of God, but also have the right heart attitude in obedience to the written word of God.

For example: Suppose there is a Christian who has the character that we can label as “Wild Mind Billy.” He has been convicted of the sin of exaggeration. Billy doesn’t lie about important things like, did he get to work on time or in honesty in financial areas of his life, but he has a way of embellishing the story. Things like if he saw ten turkeys cross the road, by the time he told the story it was a hundred turkeys.
