Wisdom and Blessings
1 Corinthians 1:25-31
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord .”
If all of you be willing and obedient, all of you shall eat the good of the land:
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
•Obedience is evidence of love and maturity.
•God determines how much He loves us, and He loves us without limit and without end.
•Our level of maturity determines the amount of blessings we can handle.
•The more we mature in the things of God the greater the blessings of God will flow.
•Let us all be determined to increase our maturity level in the things of God by consistently walking in more love, obedience and wisdom.
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.
+++Blessed we are and blessed we will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
