Proverbs 8c choose the good life

  1. 1. 1 Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Children’s Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. July 24, 2013
  2. 2. 2 Proverbs 8:20 I (Wisdom, Jesus, Word of God) lead in the Way of Righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: 21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. John 14 15 If ye love Me, keep My Command- ments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
  3. 3. 3 John 16 13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all Truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you. The Holy Spirit speaks the Will and Mind of God. All the Trinity agree in One.
  4. 4. 4 22 The LORD possessed Me in the beginning of His Way, before His Works of old. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. John 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, … Wisdom = Word of God = Jesus
  5. 5. 5 24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. 25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: 26 While as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. Before creation
  6. 6. 6 27 When He prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: 28 When He established the clouds above: when He strengthened the fountains of the deep: 29 When He gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass His Commandment: when He appointed the foundations of the earth: 30 Then I was by Him, as one brought up with Him: and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him; 31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of His earth; and My delights were with the sons of men. Jesus
  7. 7. 7 The Son of God declares Himself to have been engaged in the creation of the world. How able, how fit is the Son of God to be the Savior of the world, who was the Creator of it! The Son of God was ordained, before the world, to that great work. Does he delight in saving wretched sinners, and shall not we delight in His Salvation? Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary. We are His creation; let us receive His salvation.
  8. 8. 8 32 Now therefore hearken unto Me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep My Ways. 33 Hear (same word as hearken) instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. 34 Blessed is the man that heareth Me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the posts of My doors. To hearken unto the Lord and to His instruction Is to be wise and to be blessed. To hearken is to listen with full attention, Hear intelligently, and Walk obediently.
  9. 9. 9 35 For whoso findeth Me (Wisdom, Word of God, Jesus) findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD. Not only do men and women need to receive Jesus as Savior, we must submit unto Him as Lord of our lives. Willingly obey every Word of God, as we are led and empowered by the Holy Spirit of God.
  10. 10. 10 36 But he that sinneth against Me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate Me love death. This is the wrong choice. God has given us the free will to choose: Love Him, obey Him and be blessed. Or hate Him and His Word and be damned.
  11. 11. 11 God didn’t create us to be robots, automatically doing exactly what we were created to do. The Lord loves us and wants us to willingly love Him in return.
  12. 12. 12 1 John 5 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep His Commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His Commandments: and His Command- ments are not grievous (burdensome). Not only does the Lord teach us how to live, He gives us the Power to do what He says.
