Title: Life in Conflict, I
Text: James 3:13-18
Conflict in your life is between two kinds of wisdom. Choose heavenly.
- Beautiful Wisdom (v. 13)
Living skillfully is beautiful
Earthly Wisdom (vv. 14-16)
Living life well… for yourself
III. Heavenly Wisdom (vv. 17-18)
Christ our wisdom
“He is not righteous who works much, but he who, without work, believes much in Christ.” (Martin Luther, Heidelberg Disputation, Thesis 25)
- What does it mean to be wise and not foolish?
- What is earthly wisdom and what does it look like practically?
- If Jesus is heavenly wisdom, what does it mean to be wise?
- What’s the difference between a theology of glory and one of the cross?
