If God said you could ask Him for any one thing and He would give it to you, what would you ask for? Solomon was actually given that opportunity, and he chose the wisest thing anyone could ever ask for — wisdom. We’re later told that all the people in Israel could see the wisdom of God in Solomon. As you and I go about our daily lives, can other people see God’s wisdom in our decisions, our pursuits and our words? We should ask God for wisdom so that His glory can be on display through us.
Crucified With Christ
What is Paul saying when he says, “I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me, and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”? Is this just his way of saying that his life is finished; that he’s a marked man; that the end is in sight? Or is he saying something much different; something radical; something revolutionary; something life changing; the essence of the Gospel?
