Wisdom is Community – September 27, 2020

Sermon Outlines

Wisdom – Week 5

• Walking wisely, or wise living comes from knowing who you are in Christ. Right living flows from right understanding.
• Our salvation is no guarantee you will walk wisely and avoid landmines, hurtful decisions with terrible consequences. We are called to walk carefully.
• God is eternal Community: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
• We are made in His image and need community.
• We are susceptible to counterfeit or noxious, toxic community, even on our devises. (See: The Social Dilemma on Netflix)
• True Community is the “called out ones” ecclesia, the church, gathered together having connected with God, who has chosen, adopted, redeemed, forgiven, accepted, assigned, revealed His will to us.
• True community is people from all walks of life now being fitted together into a habitation of God in the Spirit.
• The wisdom of God is revealed through the church, even teaching the angels.
• The Church is the body of Christ, He is the head, each member playing their part to grow us up to be more like Jesus. We need each other.
• Koinonia—fellowship can only be experienced together.

Judgement in Glory – August 23, 2020

Sermon Outlines

God is not torn between love and justice.
To be truly loved, one must be truly known. God truly knows us.
Love does not exist in the absence of judgement, only in the presence of it.
We must see justice and love as coming together.
Moralizing is making a judgement and not acting upon it.
Compassion conveys a sense of passing a moral judgement but acting on it.
Whenever you extend mercy, you always do it at the expense of justice.
Reconciliation with God Himself, should be the reason we want to be forgiven.
The trajectory of a soul that lives a self-centered life will be granted what he/she wants.
