Jesus Is..., 56

~ Jesus Christ Is Our Wisdom ~

 

Passage  ~  “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).

 

 

Significance  ~  The Book of James contrasts the wisdom of this world with the “wisdom from God” noted above:  “Who is wise and understanding among you?  Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.  But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth.  This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.  For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. …  

 

[Note the change at this point.]

…  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.  Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace” (James 3:13-18).

 

 

Comment  ~  “Wisdom from God” is usually not flashy or flamboyant but rather a quiet grace.  King Solomon put it this way: “Words of the wise, spoken quietly, should be heard rather than the shout of a ruler of fools” (Ecclesiastes 9:17).  Wisdom from God is straightforward, simple, loving, faithful, and most importantly true.  Godly wisdom always operates in love.  It is never spoken to please people, rather its aim is always towards pleasing God.  A vital truth to remember is that God delights to give His wisdom to all who seek Him—regardless of your abilities, your earthly status, or your past. 

 

 

the key question:  “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15).  This is the most important question you will ever answer.  If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
