The Spirit of Christmas: Jesus as God’s Wisdom.

nat3

The soul prospers when we have clear knowledge of the truth as it is in Jesus. Colossians 2: 2-3 ” My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding. In order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, in whom are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Furthermore, when we not only believe with the heart, but are ready, when called, to make confession publicly with the mouth. Knowledge and faith make a soul rich. The stronger our faith, and the warmer our love, the more will our comfort be.That is the impact of Christmas.

Christ Jesus is what abundant treasures are in reference to the supply of our wants.

The treasures of wisdom are hid, not from us, but for us, in Christ revealed as a human baby at ” Christmas “. These were hidden from proud unbeliever, but displayed in the person and redemption of Christ . All Christians have, in profession at least, received Jesus Christ the Lord, consented to him, and taken him for theirs. We cannot be built up in Christ, or grow in him, unless we are first rooted in him, or founded upon him, being established in the faith, we must abound therein, and improve in it more and more.God however, justly withdraws the benefit from those who do not receive it with thanksgiving, and gratitude for his mercies is justly required by God.

CHRIST IS ABLE TO INSTRUCT US IN ALL THAT IT IS DESIRABLE FOR US TO KNOW, SO THAT IT IS NOT NECESSARY FOR US TO APPLY TO PHILOSOPHY, OR TO THE TEACHINGS OF HUMAN BEING
