The Apostle Paul understood that the Wisdom he possessed was a gift from God. Every gift has a purpose, and Paul’s was to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles. We have the Gospel today because God used Paul to bring it to us, and he was faithful to his purpose.
“That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:”
He preached the unsearchable riches that are found in Christ through the power of the Gospel.
“Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.”
In Christ are riches and treasures to which nothing in this world can be compared. These are available to those who choose Him, and these durable riches never fade away because of His righteousness that is imputed to us.
“I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.”
What treasures come to mind that the Lord has given you? These are not material goods or things, but rather treasures unseen that He has bestowed upon His children to allow us to live for Him.
Thank Him today for all the riches that are found through the gift of His grace and Wisdom.
