Rejoicing in the Spirit!

Scripture reading for November 22nd:  Romans 14-16, 1st Corinthians 1-2

Key Scriptures:  1st Corinthians 2:7-10  “No, we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.  None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.  However, as it is written:  “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him”–but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.  The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.” 

God’s ‘secret wisdom’ was that through the sacrificial death of His only Son, Jesus Christ, that access to God would be given to all who by faith believe in Him.   This wisdom was hidden from the rulers of this world at the time Jesus was on earth.  But now that Jesus has died and rose again and sent His Father’s gift, the Holy Spirit, God has opened up the unfathomable riches of His wisdom and eternal kingdom to all believers!  The best is yet to come!

Thankful for hidden wisdom:  “For when You did awesome things that we did not expect, You came down, and the mountains trembled before You.  Since ancient time no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides You, who acts on behalf of those who wait for Him.”  (Isaiah 64:3-4)
