Sermon Summary

In the sermon this week Pastor Billy preaches out of 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 where the apostle Paul describes a secret and hidden wisdom that is imparted to believers through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.


Discussion Questions

  1. Why does Paul begin verse 6 with the word “yet”?
  2. How can you tell the difference between spiritual wisdom and the “wisdom of this age”?
  3. What might be the fruit in someone’s life who settles for worldly wisdom as opposed to spiritual wisdom?
  4. What is Paul describing in verse 9? What is the connection with the rest of the passage?
  5. What does this passage say about how we receive spiritual wisdom? How is this different from how worldly wisdom is received?
  6. What might be the fruit in your life if you came to more deeply possess the mind of Christ (v.16)?
  7. What is standing in your way of more completely receiving and living from the mind of Christ?


For the Family

  1. Memorize: Zechariah 4:6 – Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.”
  2. Read: 1 Corinthians 1:22-25 and discuss what was wrong with what the Jews and Greeks were seeking.
  3. Discuss: How can we more fully seek spiritual wisdom from God?
