But to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks (Gentiles), Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. – 1 Corinthians 1:24
According to Paul, Christ crucified is the Wisdom of God. The redemptive work that God accomplished in Christ and redeemed man from his fallen state and restored him back to the position of His Sonship is the wisdom of God. God in His divine wisdom came up with the plan to redeem mankind in Christ by His death and resurrection.
The fullness of the understanding of the redemption plan of God in Christ is not something that a carnal man can understand. A carnal man operates on a different level, just following his flesh. So it’s a mystery to him. But the ones who are in Christ and have the Spirit of Christ in them, the Holy Spirit reveals the fullness of this Redemptive Plan in Christ.
Christ died on the cross as our substitute, He took our sin, curse, sickness, poverty and every other form of oppression and delivered us from it and finished the work and was resurrected in power on the third day. Today we can live in victory. As we understand this wisdom of God about what He did in Christ for us, we will live a victorious life.
The only way to understand the fullness of this wisdom of God is to be revealed to us in our spirit by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:7) As we spend time with the Holy Spirit, He reveals this plan more and more and helps us to understand all that God has prepared for us in Christ as Paul says: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him, But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit– 1 Corinthians 2:9,10
As a born again believer as you renew your mind with the Word of God, you have the mind of Christ. Having the mind of Christ is what it takes for you to understand this wisdom of God as the Spirit of God reveals it to your spirit. (1 Corinthians 2:16)
Spend time with Him and His Word and let Him reveal His Wisdom in what He did for you in Christ Crucified and live in the victory that Christ has purchased for you on the Cross
