Hello, today my sister and I are doing something in Proverbs 8:35 which says:
“For those who find me find life
and receive favor from the Lord.”
Wisdom is saying that those who find her, find life. God favors those who have wisdom. Wisdom is life, because it helps those who find her to make wise decisions, which could save their lives. So, we need to find wisdom in order to find life.
We said in an earlier post that Jesus is our wisdom. So if we find Jesus, we will find wisdom. But how exactly do we “find” Jesus? We find Jesus by seeing what He has done for us on the cross, and accepting it. Jesus, being our wisdom, has saved our life! Jesus gave His own life for us on the cross. He took our punishment, and gave us His righteousness.
Wisdom says that if we find her, we find life. Jesus is our wisdom, and He is the way the truth and the life. John 14:6 says:
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
If we follow Jesus He will give us wisdom. The Holy Spirit gives us wisdom to interpret the Bible, and to find the Gospel in every part of it. And the Lord doesn’t just give us wisdom; He gives us grace and mercy! His mercy and love for us was proven when He sacrificed His life for us on the cross.
The only way to come to God is through Christ and His sacrifice. We can just rejoice that He died for us so that we could come to God!
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland and,
