1 Corinthians 1:24
"… unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God."
People today run after two things: miraculous signs and wonders, and knowledge. It was no different even in Bible times. The apostle Paul acknowledged that “ …the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom” (1 Corinthians 1:22).
So when Paul preached Christ crucified as God’s solution to them, the message was “unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;” (1 Corinthians 1:23). They didn’t understand how getting a revelation of Jesus and His death could give them the miracles they needed or the wisdom they wanted.
Beloved, we don’t have to run after miracles or wisdom today. We just need to run after Jesus because He is “the power of God and the wisdom of God.” The more we know Christ and Christ crucified, the more we will have the power and wisdom of God.
If you are facing a financial debt, Christ has the power to remove the debt. And because He is also the wisdom of God, He will show you where you went wrong and teach you how to stay out of debt!
Let me give you another illustration. Let’s say a man, whose wife has left him, looks to Jesus to bring his wife back. Christ, the power of God, brings about a miraculous restoration of their marriage. But it is Christ, the wisdom of God, who will teach the husband how to keep his wife by showing him what he had done wrong and what to do to strengthen the marriage. If the husband does not have this wisdom, it will only be a matter of time before the same problems surface and his wife leaves him again. And that is what happening with many people’s healing, relationship and finance. If we have both miracle and wisdom, our life will always dive upward!
My friend, Christ is both the power and wisdom of God to us. As the power of God, He removes obstacles in our paths. As the wisdom of God, He continually directs our paths!
