Walk in wisdom
Colossians 4:5,6 - Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
Yesterday I took a session and the topic was character. I learnt something beautiful yesterday; it is foolishness of man to try to know God and understand Him. If we could, then He will cease to be God. We can not put God in our little empty boxes.
The only basic thing that we need to know and which is given in the Bible is that He is our creator and He is almighty (omnipotent in might and deeds). What we need to study and try to understand God is not Him but his character / his nature.
People who try to study Jesus become historians and people who study the nature and character of Jesus become believers and his disciples. When we come to know Jesus then we automatically will know the Father.
The same is with us; people who really know us are those who know our character. Wisdom is an important part of our character. Therefore if we have wisdom in us, it will be shown by our words and our behavior. Abiding in the vine Jesus Christ does not mean staying at an address, going to church, studying the Bible or calling one's self a Christian. It means putting on the character or nature of Jesus Christ.
Let people know you are a Christian by the wisdom that is in you.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are almighty and beyond imagination. I bow to You and worship You. Father, pour out your Spirit of wisdom in us that we may show ourselves as your children in our words and our behavior. Let us understand the importance of every word and action that emits out of us...
This we ask in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
