For today’s good sermon, we’ll be visiting The Village Church led by Pastor Matt Chandler. We haven’t heard from Matt in some time, and he is currently leading Village Church through the book of James. I’ve selected this sermon out of the series because of the implications of rightly identifying True Wisdom of God and exposing the false wisdom of the world, whether its concerning Creation, Abortion, or Sexual Immorality. The Church, the Body of Christ, is under attack around the world. We Christians need to stand firm in our faith, and we must also embrace the Wisdom of God as revealed in the Scriptures. As always, Matt Chandler does a great job of delivering both Law and Gospel in this sermon on wisdom from James chapter 3.
James 3:13-18 (ESV) | Wisdom from Above
13 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.
In Christ Jesus,
