Relating with the World’s “Wisdom” (1 Corinthians 3:18-23)

Tony FelichTony Felich, April 21, 2013
Part of the Exposition of I Corinthians series, preached at a Morning Worship service

God’s wisdom is hidden from the “wise” of this world. Their “wisdom” is foolishness where it counts- in God’s sight.
I. Know the truth about the “wisdom”of this world (18-20)
“The ‘wise’ are unable to effect any solid achievement. The end result of their vaunted wisdom is futility. It is all concerned with things that pass away”. – Leon Morris
II. It is foolish to align with the world’s “wisdom” (21-22)
III. You must know Christ to know true wisdom (23)

1 Corinthians 3:18-23

18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” 20 and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” 21 So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, 23 and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s. (ESV)
