Rejoicing in Christ!

Scripture reading for April 26th:  2nd Chronicles 8-12

Key Scriptures:  2nd Chronicles 9:5-8  “She (Queen of Sheba) said to the king, “The report I heard in my own country about your achievements and your wisdom is true.  But I did not believe what they said until I came and saw with my own eyes.  Indeed, not even half the greatness of your wisdom was told me; you have far exceeded the report I heard.  How happy your men must be!  How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom.  Praise be to the Lord your God, . . .”  

The Queen of Sheba came to see King Solomon and enjoy his wisdom.  She was overwhelmed at what she experienced!  Not even the half had been told to her!  She praised the God of Solomon who had blessed him with such wisdom and ability and gave him the throne!

Rejoicing in Jesus, our wisdom:  “The Queen of the South (Sheba) will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, and now One greater than Solomon is here.”  (Matthew 12:42)  “Namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”  (Colossians 2:2-3)
