10/29/14: Wisdom from Christ Shatters What You Know about Eternity

Published: Wednesday, 29 October 2014 Written by Carlton L. Arnold

Two major events have occurred since last week. 1) Based on significant input, I have decided to reduce what I write by about 2/3. People will find it easier and quicker to read. 2) I have totally lost my email distribution list to about 1,000 people. Therefore, no one will receive an email with this week's and succeeding week's "Life-Changing Verses". I apologize but I have never considered myself a PC technician. If someone wishes to send me their email address, I will start a new list.

 

And God Word says,

It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:30-31

After you became a Believer, God did something for you that was astounding! He gave you the wisdom of Christ. Don’t miss the deeper meaning of this wisdom of Christ. This wisdom is the spiritual discernment to see the world as it really is: good and evil. It is also the wisdom to be spiritually discerning about others…their joys and their hurts. This wisdom gives you a peace of knowing the unknown about life and things of eternity. You can rest at night knowing with full assurance that God, our Creator, is in total control of everything that is happening. You can see all current worldly events from the perspective of eternity. This wisdom is absolutely essential to grow Christ-like!

Finally, the wisdom of Christ that God gives you declares you totally pure and clean before a holy God. You are redeemed. All of the judgment and punishment and condemnation for all of your bad actions, filthy ways of living, impure motives, and just plain old disgusting thoughts have been removed and forgotten by God. There is no need for you to spend one more second on your life in the past. God has redeemed you from your old life (totally, leaving nothing, cancelling out all of your sins, not holding anything against you, your life in the past has been obliterated by God). If, as a Believer, you can make this part of your life, you will live a different kind of life. You are free to be all that God intends for one and only one purpose – that He may be glorified by your life that you live while you are passing through this world. Amen!
