In Him lie hidden ALL the treasures of Wisdom and knowledge – Colossians 2:3 NLT
Proverbs is one of the Wisdom books in the Bible. These books, that include Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon, deal with our human struggles and real-life experiences.
Yeshua Jesus is the embodiment of Wisdom. Even those who reject him as Savior acknowledge His great Wisdom as a teacher. In fact, the words of Jesus are the most quoted, memorized and printed in all of history. But all of human knowledge in all of history combined cannot compare to His Wisdom as the Creator and Sustainer of the universe.
The words of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians, written two Millennia ago, compare man’s philosophies to that of his Creator:
The Message that points to Christ on the Cross seems like sheer silliness to those hellbent on destruction, but for those on the way of salvation it makes perfect sense. This is the way God works, and most powerfully as it turns out. It’s written, I’ll turn conventional wisdom on its head, I’ll expose so-called experts as crackpots. So where can you find someone truly wise, truly educated, truly intelligent in this day and age? Hasn’t God exposed it all as pretentious nonsense? Since the world in all its fancy wisdom never had a clue when it came to knowing God, God in his wisdom took delight in using what the world considered dumb- preaching, of all things!–to bring those who trust him into the way of salvation. While Jews clamor for miraculous demonstrations and Greeks go in for philosophical wisdom, we go right on proclaiming Christ, the Crucified. Jews treat this like an anti-miracle–and Greeks pass it off as absurd. But to us who are personally called by God himself–both Jews and Greeks–CHRIST IS GOD’S ULTIMATE MIRACLE AND WISDOM ALL WRAPPED UP IN ONE. – 1 Corinthians 1: 18-24 msg
Friend, I pray you are one of those personally called by God Himself. I pray you will experience the miracle of salvation today. Time is running out. The wisdom of the world cannot sustain you. Only Jesus Christ, who holds all things together, has true Wisdom to save you. Trust in Him today, friend, and receive His Mercy and Grace. It’s the wisest choice you’ll ever make. ❤️
