Passage: 1 Corinthians 1:18–31
Audio is not available for this sermon.
- What are the criteria that the world uses to measure wisdom? How does that compare to the wisdom of God?
- Pastor Lucas gave the example of serving with the motivation of seeking approval instead of seeking to serve like Christ. What are some ways you tend to live with more of a human-wisdom perspective?
- Read 1 Corinthians 1:26-31. What do you boast in?
- Reflect on God's call in your life. Do you view God's work as powerful and miraculous?
- How does Luther's teaching on the bondage of the will (that our free will to chose to sin or not to sin is only restored at conversion) affect your view of sanctification?
