Worship Guide for November 15
Prepare for Sunday morning worship by using the guide below.
33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord,
or who has been his counselor?”
35 “Or who has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”
36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

Listen to the Sermon
Summary: We are concluding our brief series in the attributes of God. We have seen the goodness of God in his actions toward us and we have seen the sovereignty of God in carrying them out in this world, but now we see the wisdom of God which stands behind his good sovereignty. The wisdom of God is knowing the perfect means which lead to the perfect ends of his good plan for his glory and our good. In fact, in our passage, Paul is summing up the magnificence of God’s wisdom in salvation begun in chapter 1. It is this wisdom of God in his saving ways in this world which leads Paul to an outburst of praise over God’s glory. I trust that you too will find God worthy of all glory as you consider his deep and yet often dark wisdom working all things out for the good. We will follow the same flow as we have over the last few weeks: what is God like, where do we see it and how do we respond? Consider the depths of his wisdom and knowledge so that it leads you to find your greatest joy in God.
