DAY 20 WEDNESDAY: MAY 2020

JESUS CHRIST IS THE WISDOM OF GOD!

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God- and righteousness and sanctification and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).

Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God to the Christians in life. Life outside Jesus Christ is foolishness and vanity. Without the knowledge of Jesus Christ, there is no wisdom of life. In fact, the wisdom of God is embedded in Jesus Christ in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that but of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God- and righteousness and sanctification and redemption. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God in life. A Christian is expected to know the fact that Jesus Christ is indeed the wisdom of God in the affairs and operations of men in life. Without Him, there is neither life nor wisdom of God for man in life forever.

The wisdom of God which is also referred to as the fear of God has its root and origin from the knowledge of Christ Jesus in life. Jesus Christ who is the wisdom of God is also the knowledge of life. That is why the Bible says in Colossians 2:3, “In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Therefore, all the wisdom and treasures of life in God are all hidden in the knowledge of the divinity of Jesus Christ in life. Indeed, without Jesus Christ there is no life because the treasures of wisdom and knowledge of life are all hidden in Him. Therefore, everyone needs Jesus Christ to access the hidden wisdom of God and the treasures of life forever.

The wisdom of God in Christ Jesus is foolishness to the world because God’s wisdom is a mystery to the world in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:7, “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.” In fact, the hidden wisdom of God and the treasures of life are mysteries which can only be unfolded by the knowledge of Jesus Christ’s divinity in life. A Christian is expected to be deeply rooted in the wisdom of God which is Christ in him, the hope of his glory in life (Colossians 1:27). Indeed, the more Jesus Christ is formed in the life of a Christian, the more he exhibits the wisdom of God for the world to see and glorify Him in life forever.

Daily Tip: Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God to the Christians; therefore, every Christian is expected to speak the wisdom of God in a mystery to the world in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: However, we speak wisdom among those who are matured, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing (1 Corinthians 2:6).
