TEXT: 1 Corinthians 2
1 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.
2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling.
4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power,
5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit
6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.
7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.
8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him—
10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.
14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments,
16 for,“Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Anglican Daily Fountain 13th January 2022 | INTRODUCTION

There is a wide gap of difference between the wisdom of God and the wisdom of man. The wisdom of man oftentimes is embedded in big or lofty words and great learning. According to Paul, “my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the spirit and of power, that might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God (vv. 4-5). God’s work must be done in God’s own way, to achieve God’s own desired result. Every child of God must seek God’s wisdom in every area of his or her life.

Servants of God must refrain from the temptation of preaching to please men, rather our preaching should be to present Christ to the world; and this is the wisdom of God. Paul in 1 Corinthians 1: 22 – 23, says “For the Jews demand signs and Greek seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles.” The wisdom of God may sound too simple, uncivilized, and not in line with the current trends, yet the power is made manifest through it. Some ministers in search of flamboyant and sophisticated ministry, have ended up departing from the way of the truth. The wisdom of God is the way of the truth and it is also the power of God. Every believer should live by this wisdom.

Prayer: Deliver me, O Lord, from the operations of the wisdom of men and lead me by your own wisdom in Jesus’ name. Amen.
