Access To Greater Wisdom – Pastor Chris
Sunday, May 14, 2017
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).
Notice that the verse above doesn’t say, “…Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us Lord and saviour….” Yes, He’s our Lord and Saviour, but that’s about all that many Christians know Him as. He’s however also our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification and our redemption. Howbeit, in our study today, we’ll major on Him as our wisdom. Christ is your wisdom. Do you know what that means?
We all celebrate and admire Solomon for being the wisest man that ever lived, but Christ, the embodiment of wisdom Himself, lives in you. That completely outshines what Solomon had. You don’t operate with human wisdom anymore; you have access to greater wisdom. You have accurate insight into reality. You have understanding of the deepest things in life, and the ability to reason and act right. That’s the operation of the wisdom of Christ in you: a guiding force or inner working power that leads you and causes you to make the right decisions.
Christ being your wisdom means you’re excellent all the way. He makes you think what you should think, say what you should say, and do what you should do at the right time, in God’s way, for God’s purpose. This is what’s been made available to you in Christ Jesus. You have such extraordinary amplitude of comprehension, superior mental as well as supernatural sagacity to excel in all that you do: in your job, business, academics, finances, ministry, etc.
How could you ever fail, when Christ, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, lives in you? How could you ever be confused in life? There’s nothing that’s beyond your scope of understanding! You can know anything; you have astute insight and discernment into things that others find difficult to unravel, because inside you are concealed all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Dear Father, thank you, for I’m in Christ, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Therefore, I’m innovative, creative, inventive and ingenious. I always function with supernatural amplitude of comprehension, thinking excellent thoughts, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
