Sharper Iron from KFUO Radio

Sharper Iron, hosted by Rev. Timothy Appel, looks at the text of Holy Scripture both in its broad context and its narrow detail, all for the sake of proclaiming Christ crucified and risen for sinners. Two pastors engage with God’s Word to sharpen not only their own faith and knowledge, but the faith and knowledge of all who listen. Sharper Iron is underwritten by Lutheran Church Extension Fund, where your investments help support the work of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Visit lcef.org.... Show More

Rev. Dr. Adam Filipek, pastor at Holy Cross Lutheran Church and Immanuel Lutheran Church, both in Lidgerwood, ND, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Proverbs 16:8-24. The LORD gives true wealth in His wisdom, which Solomon continues to record. Christians may have less earthly wealth in this life than those who gain great riches through injustice. Yet Christians retain God’s gift of a good conscience in Christ as they walk toward the true riches of resurrection. Such divine wisdom applies not only to the lowly, but to the mighty, even kings. They have been placed in an office established by Christ in order to punish evil and reward good. For that reason, any evil a king commits is particularly abominable; when he acts according to the office he has been given, subjects act in wisdom through their obedience. In this and many other ways, wisdom shows its value above all else because wisdom points us to Christ. Rather than giving into pride, Christians recognize their standing before God in humility and rejoice in the righteousness freely given in Christ. “Wisdom and Instruction” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron that goes through the book of Proverbs. Although Proverbs is perhaps best known for its short sayings full of practical advice, the one true God has so much more in this book of wisdom. True wisdom begins with the fear of the LORD. Christians walk His way of righteousness rather than the way of wickedness because we trust that all good gifts come to us through His Son Jesus Christ, who is His wisdom made flesh for our salvation.
