“Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets” (Proverbs 1:20).Text — Proverbs 1:20-30
On wisdom, hear J. A. Motyer, “Wisdom opens the eyes both to the glories of heaven and to the hollowness of earth.” Our text reveals the demand of God from man. This has to do with the desirable blessings of obedience and the dangers of rejecting or neglecting the offer of salvation through Christ. Jesus Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. Indeed, Jesus is wisdom personified (1Corinthians 1:24). He cries out, “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). He will save, sanctify, secure and guide His own in the journey of life. But the rebellious will face His eternal wrath.
On which side are you: The side of Christ or the devil, the side of wisdom or the side of folly? Remember: “One cannot live foolishly forever without reaping the benefits,” says Brent A. Strawn. Those who reject Christ will be barred from His presence forever. Make your choice now! Choose Christ that it may be well with you here and in the hereafter.
