In 1 Corinthians 1:24 and 30 the wisdom of God denotes the divine way. If we have wisdom, we shall know the proper way to do things….In order to have the best way, we must have wisdom. Wisdom in these verses is equal to the way in John 14:6….Apart from Christ as the way, we do not have access to the Father….If we would enjoy Him and participate in Him, we must have a way, and this way is God’s wisdom…. As wisdom to us from God as God’s way, Christ is righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. Actually, these are three steps of the way.
Righteousness, sanctification, and redemption are the materials used in the construction of the freeway in our Christian life. Have you ever realized that wisdom is our way, our freeway, and that righteousness, sanctification, and redemption are the materials used in making this freeway? …Whenever we enjoy Christ and experience Him, we first have God as our righteousness. This means that when we exercise our spirit and call on the name of the Lord Jesus, we become righteous. We are also sanctified….The more we exercise the spirit to call on the name of the Lord Jesus, the more we are separated from what is common and from being common ourselves.
