“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” (Proverbs.4:7).

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs.9:10).

There is only one book that gives us a reliable answer to all questions of Human heart. All we need to know about universe, revealed in the pages of Bible.

In Genesis chapter one is a very simple narrative of the creation of the world; Simple, yet majestic in its beauty & profound in its depth.Creation alone can speak to our intelligence an imperishable language, never changing, because it remains within the bounds of eternal truth & of what is absolutely noble& beautiful. What a greatness of miracle contained in every ray of light, every drop of dew, every pebble of the brook, every fragment of rock, every blade of grass; what a Magnificent of order & law there is revealed in every natural process– the motion of earth, the sun, & stars, the flow of tides, the rush of the breeze, the braiding of the rainbow on the cloud, the change of seasons, the springing, growth, blossoming,& fruit-bearing of flower,& shrub,& tree! These are the works of God, the laws of God, the daily miracles of God. In all of them wisdom is seen; wisdom as profound as it is perfect, as incomprehensible as it is glorious, as magnificent in its minuteness as in its vastness, in the grain of sand as in the mighty mountain, in the blush of the unnoticed desert-flower as in the splendor of a new-lighted star. In all this there is wisdom; yet all these are but parts– mere fragments; ONLY in Christ Jesus, the incarnate Word– is the mighty whole contained. Jesus is "the Wisdom of God." In the works of creation God has displayed portions of his wisdom– but in Christ he has summed up & put forth THE WHOLE of it; so that it can be said of this Christ, He is the wisdom of God.

In 1 Corinthians chapter one we see: In Jesus 1) The Preeminence of God’s Wisdom (1:18) 2) The Permanence of God’s Wisdom (1:19–20) 3) The Power of God’s Wisdom (1:21-25) 4) The Paradox of God’s Wisdom (1:26-28) and finally: 5) The Purpose of God’s Wisdom (1:29-31). “But to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”(1 Corinthians.1:24.)

Hence the knowledge of Christ not only transcends all other knowledge– but includes them all; the study of this wondrous embodiment of all that is in God is not only superior to– but actually embraces, all other studies. "In him are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” It is of this Wisdom that the "wise man" speaks in the Proverbs so frequently. "The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was." Sometimes the name given is the "Wisdom of God;" sometimes it is the "Word of God." You cannot think of a question or life circumstance about which God’s Word is silent. The Bible is thus the one complete &fully sufficient testimony of the God who created us, containing within its pages everything that he has determined that we could need to be pleasing to Him. Christ is its grand subject, our good the design, and the glory of God its end. Let the Wisdom of God fill our memory, rule our heart and guide our feet.
