THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Instead of searching vainly for the “fountain of youth;”
How about finding the fountain of SMART?
The airman came to his First Sergeant.
He said, “Sir, my immediate supervisor, Sgt. Kelley is off his rocker.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he asked me to jump in the lake!”
First Sergeant, “Well, I doubt that is true. But if it ever happens,
you come see me.”
The airman looked pleased.
The First Sergeant added, “But, WHEN you do come complaining
again – you better be WET!”
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:
and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
LIGHT from the WORD.
The “knowledge of the Holy” that brings “understanding” is
the knowledge that God is ALWAYS right!
That “knowledge” brings with it the “fear" of the Lord,
which means to have genuine, or exceeding reverence.
And, that type of reverence is EXHIBITED in willingness
to accept and do His will.
Jesus is the “wisdom of God” displayed in man.
For, Jesus became “obedient” to God – even to death! (See Ppns. 2:5-8)
Jesus EXHIBITED His wisdom and obedience!
If one truly desires “understanding,” one will come to Christ.
If one is truly wise, one will EXHIBIT that wisdom by
following God’s will.
Christianity, my friends, is an exhibition religion!
It is lived by exhibiting experiential knowledge of Him
Who has the power to save – OR to condemn!
