Wisdom For God's People

Tonight (Wednesday, 1/3, 7:00 pm), gather with your Calvary Chapel family in the Holy Grounds Cafe’ or on our website (www.calvaryinv.com

 Facebook, and YouTube (Calvary Inverness) as we continue our three-year journey through the Bible by beginning the book of Proverbs (1-7).
King Solomon, the son of David, is the author of most of the Proverbs, along with those who served in the royal court of King Hezekiah, the prophet Agur, and Solomon’s mother, Bathsheba.

The book is also known as the Book of Wisdom. It is a collection of pithy sayings to assist the people of God in understanding how to navigate through a sinful and depraved culture without being contaminated by sin. And how one can live a life that is pleasing to the Lord and fruitful in the ministry that they have been called.

The first seven chapters are written by a Father who instructs his son to be wary of immoral women and wicked men who constantly search for ways to compel him to turn from a secure and satisfying relationship with God and give himself over to sinful pleasure.
To counter the temptation his son will face, the author offers an alternative that will equip him to avoid falling prey to the wicked’s attempt to compromise him.

He instructs his son to heed his instructions, cherish wisdom as a priceless treasure, understand how vital wisdom is to his life, and finally, guard, protect, and watch over his heart, for from it springs all the issues of life.

Please pray that this three-year journey through the Word of God will be received by open hearts that long to grow in the Grace and Knowledge of Jesus. Moreover, He would do deep and abiding work in and through us for a world in desperate need of a Savior.
In His Strong Love,
