WISDOM

page 1

Through our "Incredible Journey with Jesus" we have learned to take everything to God, our Father, and let His wisdom guide us. We don't go to the world to learn and gain wisdom. There is a good reason for it. This is what God has to say about the wisdom of this world.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is the One who catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows the reasoning of the wise, that they are useless.”
                 (1 Corinthians 3:19, 20)

 Beloved, we must believe it and act upon it! In Christ Jesus are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Only God’s wisdom is able to settle any situation, and only His wisdom can decide anything justly. Let us not settle for anything else, for wisdom involves sound judgment about practical things.
Brothers and sisters, know your Father and His Word, for only the truth of the Word of God will set you free.


RIGHTEOUSNESS

I thank God for Jesus! It is only because of Him, and His finished work on the cross and the Resurrection that we, the believers, can stand before God in confidence, fully acknowledging that we are righteous in His sight. We are in this position not because of our righteous deeds, but because the Righteous One lives in us.
We could never please the holy God with our righteousness. As with everything else, we have to see righteousness in the Spirit--from God's perspective, instead of in the flesh--from our perspective. When God says righteous, He means perfect. Perfection is God's only standard for righteousness. Do you still think you would qualify for entrance into the kingdom of God on your own merits?


LOVE

I praise our Father in heaven for continually showing me what love is. Love from His perspective--love, which is an act of will. Love that says, "I love you." Period. No conditions, no strings attached, and no end. We needed the Holy Spirit to reveal to us that kind of love--the unconditional love. It is love which surpasses knowledge. It is a conquering love, and an incorruptible love--a godly love. Love from the heart is the goal of our faith--faith working through love. We can only love with this kind of love--the unconditional love, because we know that is how God loves us. The knowledge of God's love is paramount to us.
The love that we have been accustomed to in this world is different from God's love. Agape love--God's love is a higher kind of love than human love. It is a foreign love to a natural man. It is a supernatural love. Only the Holy Spirit can produce godly love in us.


FAITH

It's been more than twenty years since I put my faith in the only One worth placing faith in. For we can have great faith in people or things, but they may let us down.
The object of our faith must be God and His Word. We don't need great faith to begin. We need faith. Period! Faith is knowing that God already did or said something, and then acting upon it. Our faith doesn't cause anything. In our faith we plug into what is already established by God. We begin to live each day in alignment with His will.

 

HOPE

Hope is what keeps us going. We hope for good things: a loving spouse and family, peace, health and prosperity, good paying job and promotions, great weather for the weekend, and the list goes on. Just recently I hoped that a hurricane wouldn't come my way--but it did. So as we can see, this kind of hope is not a solid hope. It is more like wishful thinking. It may happen, or it may not. Anyone or anything in this world can shatter our hope.
But when I met Jesus, He elevated my hope. Jesus became my hope. And this hope is of a different quality, because God Himself stands behind His promises. My life has changed; I have changed. Everything started to make sense. What happened? I have fixed my hope on God.
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast.
(Hebrews 6:19)


WORSHIP

TO WORSHIP GOD IS TO WALK IN THE SPIRIT--TO WALK IN LOVE

Beloved, God wants us to love each other as He has loved us. We worship God with our every breath. It comes directly from our heart, and it is the attitude behind all we do, the motivation for why we do what we do. If we are always looking for the interest of others and not just our own--in that we worship God. If we don't respond to our angry and upset spouse with angry words, but with pleasant and healing words--in that we worship God. If we don't yield to a temptation--in that we worship God. If we thank God for everything, if we always rejoice in the Lord, if we forgive others as Jesus forgave us--in that we worship God.
To worship God is not just what we consider the spiritual things like going to church, reading Bible, praying, etc. We worship God even in the most mundane tasks. How? We do all things in the name of the Lord. We have a proper attitude toward everyone and everything, We walk in the manner worthy of God.


BLOOD OF JESUS

Under the Old Testament, God had a system for forgiveness of sins. It was the blood of bulls and goats that atoned for (covered) the sins of the people.
The problem with this provision was that the blood of bulls and goats could never take away sins forever. It had to be repeated and repeated and repeated. It was a mere shadow, of the reality--Jesus.
At the appointed time in history, Jesus appeared as a High Priest who didn't just cover sins like the blood of bulls and goats or calves. Jesus took sin away.
On the cross, the sins of the entire world were put on Jesus. They were judged, and the verdict was guilty ("All have sinned"--Romans 3:23). The penalty was death ("The wages of sin is death"--Romans 6:23), and the punishment was executed--Jesus died.
On the cross, God dealt with the whole issue of sin. Jesus put away sin by sacrificing Himself.
So, we see that the blood of Jesus played the central role. God reconciled the world to Himself through the death of His Son, so that we can now be saved by the life of His Son.
