BIBLE READING: COLOSSIANS 2:1-3; EPHESIANS 1:3-8; 1 CORINTHIANS 1:24
“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and Righteousness and Sanctification and Redemption— that, as it is written, He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians” 1:30-31(NKJV).
The embodiment of all that the believer can be, can have and can manifest is found in Christ. Jesus Christ is our Life (see Col.3:4) and one of the Manifestations of that Life is Wisdom. As a Christian, don’t be so quick to seek the wisdom of the world when you encounter challenges. The wisdom of reasoning, of logic, of science, of academics, of self interest, etc., is all the world knows. The Bible calls it earthly, sensual and devilish wisdom (see Jam. 3:13-15) which is in stark contrast to the Wisdom that has its origin in the Lord God Almighty: “But the Wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of Mercy and Good Fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy” (Jam. 3:17).
The Wisdom of God is Embodied in the Person of Christ Jesus Himself. The Bible says the world by wisdom cannot know God (see 1Cor.1:21). This is because the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God (see 1Cor.3:19). The wisdom of the world is failing which is why there are so many problems they don’t have answers to. The Bible says Wisdom is the Principal Thing (see Prov.4:7). Most problems in life are wisdom problems. The frustration, the despair and the hopelessness men feel are all a result of not knowing what to do, what the future holds and what the final outcome will be. The Wisdom of God is the Answer to all of our problems. It transcends time and space and defies logic. It goes beyond the limits of human reasoning.
The Wisdom of God can be found in the written Word of God, but most importantly it is found in the Person of Jesus Christ. When a man receives Jesus Christ, he has received the Embodiment of all the Wisdom he needs to solve problems and thrive in life. All he needs to do is to access this Wisdom daily as he communes with Christ Jesus and feeds on His Word.
Lord, You are our Life, our Light, our Righteousness and our Wisdom. Help us to access all that You are in us and all that we are in You so that we can reveal and manifest You to our world which you have purchased with Your Blood in Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen.
