“ARE YOU A WISE OR A FOOLISH MAN?”

Luke 6:46-49
The hills of Palestine had very little vegetation on them. The winter rains would bring violent floods that swept away any building in its path. Sand would wash away quickly and buildings on the rock would stand.
1. The Bible gives wisdom: by the way, it is the only source of wisdom for us today.
James 1:5, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
2. The Bible will set your soul on fire according to Psalm 119:11, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
Notice:
3. The Bible will set your heart on fire for God and the things of God.
4. The Bible will set your heart on fire for the Word of God.
Why do so many Christians fail?
They don’t listen to God.
They say it is too hard.
They don’t anticipate problems.
They are too busy with minor unimportant things.
They are unobserving.
They are irresponsible.
They have no plan.
They are inconsistent.
They are near-sighted, not far-sighted.
5. The Bible will set your heart on fire for the need of prayer.
Pray several times a day and say, “Oh God help me.”
Pray things through.
Pray expectantly.
CONTINUED TOMORROW!
