Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

July 30, 2011 (the wisdom of God)

the wisdom of God

“Wisdom can be none other than the eternal Son of God.
The Apostle Paul calls Him ‘the wisdom of God’
(1 Corinthians 1:24).
In Him ‘are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge’
(Colossians 2:3).
If you want to get to know the God of wisdom,
study the life of Jesus Christ.
As a boy, He ‘kept increasing in wisdom and stature,
and in favor with God and men’
(Luke 2:52).
When He began His public ministry,
He taught with such penetrating perception
and amazing authority that people asked,
‘Where did this man get this wisdom,
and these miraculous powers?’
(Matthew 13:54)
He confronted the hypocritical scribes and Pharisees
with such crisp thinking that they could not answer Him
(e.g. Matthew 22:46).
They had the finest theological minds of the day,
but their mouths were stopped
before the wisdom of Jesus Christ.
God gave the world the most complete
and comprehensive demonstration of His wisdom possible
when He sent His Son to earth.”
- Richard L. Strauss
