Christ is made unto us wisdom


But of Him (God) are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30)

The Bible says Christ Jesus is made unto us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.


“Christ is made unto us wisdom” means that Christ has become our wisdom. Therefore, we do not function with human wisdom but with an excellent wisdom. You see, a lot of Christians were never taught how to take advantage of that which Christ has made available to them. When you learn to take advantage of this excellent wisdom, you’ll always know the right thing to do.

The Bible says, “A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool’s back” (Proverbs 26:3). The type of rod this scripture is referring to isn’t like the whip used on a horse; it’s referring to the whip of life. Many are whipped by different circumstances in life and suffer because of ignorance. They make terrible mistakes in their lives because they haven’t learnt how to take advantage of the wisdom of God. The more you put God’s Word into your spirit, the more you dig into that wisdom and avail yourself of its privileges and advantages; you’ll begin to function in it at home, in your academics, on your job, in your business, and in your finances.

A life that is void of the wisdom of God will be full of afflictions and sufferings. But when you begin to function with it, you’ll walk out of every affliction. God knows every wrong step you could take and He would guide your steps from making any of them through this wisdom. So you see, you don’t have to make the blunders anymore; you can be more certain of your choices in life. Avail yourself of that wisdom today and walk through life victoriously!


Dear Heavenly Father! I thank You for anointing me with the wisdom of Christ, for as many as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Teach me to apply my heart to this wisdom and also to submit to its authority in my life, in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
