Big Truth:

Wisdom Pursues What Is Pure

Matthew 5:8; Psalm 119:9; 1 Timothy 4:12; Romans 13:14; Philippians 4:8

Bible Verse:

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8

“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:18-20

Matthew 5:8; Philippians 4:8; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20

Big Ideas:

  • We pursue purity in relationships by guarding our heart and mind against temptation.
  • We pursue purity in relationships by not awakening love until its time.
  • We pursue purity by seeing marriage as God’s beautiful design for intimacy and sexual pleasure.

FOCUS: Living In Wisdom

SERIES: Proverbs

The Kneel Year is an exploration of what it means to worship God with our all (Luke 10:26-28) and to use our influence to lead others to do the same. We know that as we pursue a life of worship, we will pursue a life of both wisdom and mission. Throughout this year we will study and pursue the wisdom of God through the book of Proverbs and the mission of God through the book of Acts, and we will learn how both of these things must inform and shape our influence as Jesus followers!
