WALK IN WISDOM
TEXT: COLOSSIANS 4:2-6
MEMORY VERSE: “Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time” (COLOSSIANS 4:5).
Wisdom is a very important virtue which all Christians must possess. Christ is the wisdom of God. There should therefore be nothing like a foolish Christian. Walking in wisdom is a call to all Christians to know how to behave as they interact with believers and unbelievers in the society.
God’s Word is a source of wisdom. “It is a fact that those whose lives are daily being conformed to the word and purposes of God will see issues more plainly,” said Malcolm Watts.
Christian youths should guard their salvation jealously to avoid backsliding. Youths in high schools and tertiary educational institutions should watch who they accept as friends; take note, sudden friends lead to regrets. Some youths are lured into cults and wicked gangs for not walking wisely.
The starting point of walking in wisdom is making Christ your Lord and Saviour. It is also wisdom to change the lives of sinning youths in your locality through evangelism.
QUOTE: Christ is the Wisdom of God.
CHALLENGE: Sudden friends lead to regrets.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, may I be like You, in wisdom.
