-What Greater Wisdom?

Picture Frame What Greater Wisdom? “And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19 “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

Knowledge leads to understanding, which leads to wisdom: this is the natural progression of learning in any subject. Knowledge is the accumulation of information. Understanding is the assimilation of knowledge, putting it into a useful context. And wisdom is the practical application of understanding, putting it to good use. Knowing the love of Christ surpasses all other knowledge in usefulness. When we go beyond simply having the knowledge of His love and sacrifice, and actually experience that love in our hearts, we become “filled with all the fullness of God.” Understanding the peace of God surpasses the understanding of any scientific principle, law, or mystery. Understanding the universe gives no comfort in times of trial, trouble, or death. But the peace of God can, because we know God knew our sin, understood our need, and in His wisdom sent His Son to bring all who trust Him back to Him.

“He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Rom. 8:32). Christ is the forerunner who will lead us safely to the harbor of God’s shore. He came to give us peace with God, peace from God, and the peace of God (Rom. 5:1; Phil. 1:2,4:7). His love surpasses all other love. In Him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col. 2:3). What greater wisdom can there be than to rest in Him?
