The Illusion of Wisdom (revisited)

“There is no wisdom in sin.” – A W Tozer

I often deceive myself by justifying the use of my own wisdom to justify my slow or lack of obedience of the gospel.  Do I really know more than God?  Why do I continue to scheme and attempt to save my own life through my frequent visits to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil?  Our insatiable desire to “know”, inherited from Adam, often trumps Jesus’ simple offer to trust and love and obey.

By reflecting on the superior wisdom of the gospel in this sermon, may we see the “surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus our Lord” and the folly of our own wisdom in light of the wisdom of the cross.
