Worship and Wisdom

Posted on · Posted in Wisdom, Worship

It is impossible to separate the acceptable worship of God from a deep love of the wisdom of God.

Biblical wisdom is more precious than anything, anything that you can desire. If you do not desire God’s wisdom above all else, your worship will be an exercise in self-service. One of the reasons that Christ died is so that his people will walk in newness of life, to walk in the wisdom and commands of God. Thus true worship will lead to a life of loving God’s wisdom..

Failure to love wisdom, is a failure to love God.
Proverbs 3:13-15
Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding,

for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.

She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare with her.

John 13:23-24
Jesus answered, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word. My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. The one who doesn’t love Me will not keep My words. The word that you hear is not Mine but is from the Father who sent Me.
