Read Introduction to Colossians

 

“Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.”
 
“in all wisdom”
 
It takes “wisdom” to handle false teaching. Some people emotionally attach themselves to false doctrine. Each person views truth from their individual grid. Paul did not propel them into the opposite camp by unnecessarily violating their viewpoints. However, on the other hand, it also does not mean that we sacrifice truth for feelings. Spiritual surgery requires delicate precision.
 
“Wisdom” is the ability to apply what we know to our personal experience. It is the application of knowledge. It is one thing to preach, warn and teach; it is another thing to do it with “wisdom.”
Principle:
Wisdom is the ability to apply divine truth to a situation.
Application:
How do you handle delicate doctrinal situations? Do you attack it with a sledge hammer? God does not want us to polarize those Christians to fall into error. He wants us to help them out of it by using wisdom.
