The number 100 is know both anciently and in contemporary culture as a number of abundance. It’s a number we use often to speak of having a bunch of something.
In James 1:5 we read that if we lack wisdom in any area that we should ask of God. It also says that God gives to us in abundance. Many who are familiar with my ministry and prayer life know this to be a verse I regularly cling to. I believe it! In Romans 12:11 we read that we are never to be lacking in zeal. So this led me to a thought about ways to put this into action. I have also spoken of “challenges” and exercises as a way to keep our Spiritual fervor. It takes diligent to keep the fervor God desires from us and I can personally attest to the power of maintaining Spiritual disciplines and “challenges”.
Proverbs 15:22 tells us about the success of one who has many advisors. Sermons from a variety of preachers can offer such wisdom we are seeking and provide a variety so we can “use discernment”.
As we move into 2018, I myself am seeking wisdom on vision (namely, because our annual meeting at The Blue Point Bible Church is at the end of January). However, I ask you to be honest and examine yourself (2 Corinthians 13:5). What are you seeking wisdom on?
Listen to 100 sermons from at least 5 different pastors on the topic you are seeking God’s wisdom. Take notes, use discernment and seek the voice of God. Prayerfully, you will share your #100SermonsChallenge notes on Facebook Notes or your personal blog. Please post your blogs on my Facebook page or send through email (ChristianityGoneWild@Yahoo.com).
On February 1st, 2018 – A participant in the #100SermonsChallenge will be chosen at random to receive a copy of Freaked Out by the New Covenant & Wicked. Two edifying books by me!
Blessings in Christ Jesus,
Pastor Michael Miano
