COG’s current COVID-19 Update
FAITH that Works
1.24.21
  
“Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”                                                                                                            James 3:13-18     ESV

Worldly Wisdom:

Godly Wisdom:


BIG IDEA:
What we need is wisdom that comes down from Heaven.


Game Plan This Week:

1st Down:
-         Review the sermon
o   What were the main points?
o   What points were most meaningful to you?

2nd Down:
-         Study/discuss the text
o   From James 3:13-18, where true wisdom comes from.
o   Agree or disagree: Wisdom can be shown; and it does not exist if it is not shown.

3rd Down:
-         Break into smaller groups and discuss these items:
o   Why is it important that we seek God’s perspective in all that we face?
o   When it comes to humility in our heart, is this a work of our own or is it a work of God? Explain your answer? How did Jesus, Paul and others in the Bible humble themselves in the midst of trials?
o   How is taming our tongue tied to this passage and our heart condition?

4th Down:
-         This week make a commitment to sit down often with God and discuss how you can live out wisdom.
o   Contemplate on this question: What relationships do I need to show more wisdom?
o  How does this passage change your prayer life?
o  Continue to build on the daily habit of prayer this week.
o  Ask God who are the three people that are not followers of Jesus that you need to begin praying for.
