Day 23 - Jesus: My Wisdom | “House of Wisdom” Devotional

Friday, February 23, 2018 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

1 Corinthians 1:30  But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.

NOTE: This lesson in “House of Wisdom” is not based in the Book of Proverbs.
There are many benefits that come with the New Birth and union with Christ. This Christian life is much more than going to church, not going to hell, and going to heaven. 

We received grace to possess virtues and blessings that would be impossible to gain by any other means. Along with the new nature we received comes a kind of spiritual “DNA.” Science summarizes human DNA as, “the fundamental and distinctive characteristics or qualities of someone.” That’s a good description of what we have in Christ!

Our Scripture text identifies the following characteristics of our spiritual nature from Jesus Christ:

1. Wisdom: Ability to make good choices and use understanding and knowledge
2. Righteousness: Right standing with God
3. Sanctification: Set apart to God for holy and high purpose
4. Redemption: Purchased by Jesus’ life and blood. Free from all claims of sin.

These are not virtues that we seek. These are virtues that we possess because of Christ. Just as talented people have to be coached and developed over many years, believers in Christ need to “grow in grace.” 

Reflection Question: Write one statement describing your spiritual DNA, “Through Christ I have_________________________”
