“I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers.” Philemon 1:4
It is with a thankful heart that I draw our study series to a close, The Way of Wisdom: Choices with a Gospel Mindset. I truly hope it has blessed and helped you to grow in your walk with our Lord. I have grown through this series, and I am grateful to you for allowing me to serve you in this way.
Our last study is on 27 June. We will have a time of summary and reflection of what we studied and how we can help each other apply it to our everyday lives. So between now and the 27th, there will be study buddy sheet, along with a brief revisiting of each study on this blog. I encourage you to ponder and jot a few notes if it is helpful. The bible study questions and notes are also available on the blog to jog your memory…
The opening study: The Inescapable Choice. The text was taken from Matthew 7 where we began with the text of narrow/wide gates; foolish/ wise builder. Jesus reminds us that this choice is one which will lay the trajectory for all of life’s choices and eternity. There only two ways to live: the way of the Lord and the way of the world. Our Lord challenges us to make up our minds.
The second study: Measuring Our Choices By Bible’s Wisdom. This means to obey what the Bible says instead of what the world or our sinful self says; to make wise choices in light of the Gospel. We considered what it is to fear God in Proverbs 2:1-6 and how that brings about Godly wisdom. This scripture is a foundational truth with which to build on.
What stands out to you from these two studies? How is God’s word changing you in these areas of choices?
