The Purpose of Proverbs

The Purpose of Proverbs
Pastor David Anderson
Proverbs 1:1-7

Solomon says the purpose of Proverbs is wisdom, moral instruction, to discern wise counsel (vs. 2), and to develop skillful living in what is right, just and fair (vs. 3). The chief aim of the book is to enable us to look at life through God’s eyes. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we can trust His eternal, all-knowing point of view and live accordingly.

Four Approaches to Wisdom

Four Approaches to Wisdom
Pastor David Anderson
Proverbs

God wants to turn us from victims into victors, from people who abdicate responsibility into men and women who pursue character, integrity, and trustworthiness and press into difficult situations. It’s this character that God is forming in us that will allow us to fulfill who we are intended to be. It’s this character that will provide influence and allow us to teach truth and love others in a world that does neither. It’s through our new heart, new nature, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and our cooperation with Him that our character will take shape.

Psalm 23 The LORD is My Shepherd part 2

Pastor David Anderson
Psalm 23

In Psalm 22 David is picturing the cross of the Good Shepherd, and in Psalm 24 David is picturing the glory of the Good Shepherd and His strong and mighty intervention. Psalm 23 describes the time in-between. The time between the cross and the King of glory coming again. The time in-between that involves green pastures and also valleys of the shadow of death, comfort and fear, cups running over and enemies, goodness and mercy and dreams of dwelling in the house of the Lord.

Red Sky at Morning

Pastor Colin McDougall
Matthew 16:1-4

God is a master of signage. Here is what Jesus said in Matthew 16:2, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be clear weather, because the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘There will be a storm today, because the sky is red and threatening.’” In English we say, “Red sky at night is a sailor’s delight; red sky at morning, good sailors take warning.” God puts up a brightly lit sign every morning and evening so we can prepare for the weather He is sending. He also lights up a sign for certain generations in world history.
