“Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours:”
Therefore let no one boast in men.
No Christian should put ultimate truth in the authority of man. This always causes divisions in the local church.
For all things are yours:
All of God’s revelation is at our disposal, so why should we get caught up in the wisdom of men?
The believer under God holds great status and assets.
Human wisdom is not permanent but temporal. There are two essential approaches to truth today: the natural and the supernatural. The one believes that all that one can know is bound within nature; the other believes that there is a God and that He has spoken. The person who believes that the natural is all that there is can never come to an ultimate certainty about anything, for he has delimited himself to finiteness. The believer who knows this can claim his status and assets to live the Christian life.
