Walk in Wisdom, Walk in Jesus

Colossians 4:5-6
King James Version (KJV)
Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

If we read Proverbs we find Wisdom is to be sought always,  if we read carefully we find we can substitute Jesus for Wisdom and not be  off the mark.

1 Corinthians 1:30
King James Version (KJV)
30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Jesus is our wisdom,  righteousness, sanctification and redemption. So when we walk in wisdom toward them that are without.  He is speaking of people that know the Lord, interacting with those who do not know Jesus.

When I was saved,  I had found faith, peace and joy, but patience,  meekness, goodness, gentleness, love or temperance had not yet developed in my life.  I had found a good thing and everyone I saw needed to come aboard or you’re all going to hell.

Instead of redeeming the time, in my zeal I am sure the people I loved and cared for the most were driven far from the Lord.  My speech had no grace or love.  Condemnation was my strong suit.

As I’ve grown I hope I’ve become more Christ like and recognize He loved the sinners and that my religious spirit was a worse sin than those who didn’t know the truth.

I pray now that the love and grace of our Lord is what people see, hear and expect from me.  That people find Jesus through my walk with Him.

Lord may you be lifted up, so all men will be drawn to You.
