Reality – to be submitted to, not imagined
Proverbs 13-15/Matthew 8-9
13:7 Some who are poor pretend to be rich; others who are rich pretend to be poor.
:16 Wise people think before they act; fools don’t and even brag about it!
8:2 Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached Jesus. He knelt before him, worshiping. ‘Lord,’ the man said, ‘if you want to, you can make me well again.’
:5 When Jesus arrived in Capernaum, a Roman officer came and pleaded with him
:19 Then one of the teachers of religious law said to him, ‘Teacher, I will follow you no matter where you go!’
:25 The disciples went to him and woke him up, shouting, ‘Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!’
OT Flash Points
Build to last
NT Flash Points
Prerequisite to building
Turn to & believe on Jesus
Take your imagination into captivity to Jesus
Don’t try to think a problem through
You’ll only muddle it
OBEY, in particular, the nature of Jesus
And it will clear
Simplicity – the secret of seeing clearly
When we try to be wise or think ourselves wise, we see nothing.
