Guiding Scripture:

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without uncertainty of insincerity (James 3:17).

Sermon Points

Listen to the writer of James – what comes from God is pure…that means its free of selfish motives; it promotes harmony (it’s peaceable); it is considerate and courteous (it’s gentle); it allows for discussion, can be modified, and is ultimately logical (open to reason); it’s compassionate (full of mercy); ultimately serves the best interest of everyone (good fruit); and is impartial, straightforward, free of doubt, and honest (without uncertainty and insincerity).

If any proposed course of action fulfills all those requirements (regardless of when or how you have conceived the course of action), you can follow it confidently, for it will be in accordance with God’s will. If any attribute is missing, the wise person postpones action until he or she has received guidance with all the attributes of wisdom from above.

Point #1: God is always speaking to you.

Point #2: You can learn to hear from God.

Points #3: Spiritual confidence comes acting on what you heard.
