How Christ Becomes Wisdom to Us from God as Righteousness, Sanctification and Redemption

How Christ becomes wisdom to us from God

Have you ever felt short of wisdom to live your human life? I know I have.  Whether in our personal life, marriage life, family life or professional life, we often sense a lack.

But as believers, the Bible brings us the good news that “Christ became wisdom to us from God.” But how can Christ become wisdom to us in our daily?

Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 1:30,

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, Who became wisdom to us from God: both righteousness and sanctification and redemption.”

From this verse let’s consider how we can experience Christ as wisdom in three practical steps…

5 Ways the Wisdom of God Will Make You More Christlike

There are so many remarkable characteristics of Jesus Christ that we see from reading the Gospels. We can see His love and compassion for the people, His unparalleled knowledge of the Scriptures, His power over natural forces, His positive leadership traits, His eloquence and boldness, His humility and obedience, His faith and His wisdom.

Why can’t you as a Christian always display these sublime characteristics as Jesus Christ did? More specifically, why can’t you as a Christian in your everyday living demonstrate heavenly wisdom in dealing with people, things and situations like Jesus to bring glory to God?

Jesus always showed uncommon wisdom in dealing with the proud, rich and famous. In deflating the sanctimonious egos of the Pharisees. In showing uncommon grace to the guilty-as-charged adulterous woman. In dealing with the tax man. In imparting knowledge to His disciples and immediate followers.

Is it possible for you as a Christian to walk in the wisdom of Christ?

Good news.

How Can We Be Angry and Not Sin?

How Can We Be Angry and Not Sin?

“Be angry and do not sin” (Ephesians 4:26).

Is this even possible?

Not if perfect, sinless anger is the requirement, since sin infects everything we think, say, and do.

But I don’t think Paul had perfect, sinless anger in mind when he quoted King David from Psalm 4:4 to the Ephesians. Paul’s point seems to be that not all anger Christians experience is rooted in the prideful, selfish soil of our sin nature.

There is a kind of anger that comes from our regenerate, Spirit-directed nature, even if it is unavoidably tainted by our indwelling sin as it passes through the defective filters of our minds and mouths. And because the Holy Spirit through David and Paul instructs us to “be angry,” it means some things must make us righteously angry.

So what does righteous anger look like in a Christian?
