Our Power and Wisdom
The book of Proverbs says, "Wisdom has built her house, she has set up her seven pillars"
(Proverbs 9:1). And the apostle Paul referred to Jesus Christ as "the power of God and the wisdom of God"
(1 Corinthians 1:24) to us. Legendary Bible teacher Herbert Lockyer unfolds the seven "pillars" of divine wisdom demonstrated in Christ's incarnation and redeeming work on earth that the church upholds as essential truths of the faith. Understanding these pillars will help us to become more like Jesus and to fulfill God's purposes, both here and in eternity:
- The Pillar of Mystery
- The Pillar of Incarnation
- The Pillar of Vindication
- The Pillar of Revelation
- The Pillar of Proclamation
- The Pillar of Belief
- The Pillar of Glorification
The early church was dynamic in its witness because it continued steadfastly in these pillars of the Christian faith. Likewise, when we meditate reverently on the events and truths of Jesus' coming to earth, we appreciate more deeply the great salvation that we have received, and we become more eager and able to share these liberating truths with others.
