“…For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.” Isaiah 29:14b (Additional Reading Isaiah 30-31; James 1)
God cannot be worshiped based on doctrine taught by men. In other words, no one should ever think of worshiping God by mere wisdom of men. Apparently, this is the issue raised here.
Today we are no more concerned with the leading of Holy Spirit neither are we concerned with what the word of God says. The Church today seems more focused on doctrines and traditions—the way we’ve been doing it. So we worship Him with our lips but our hearts are far from Him. His body has relegated Him to the background saying we have and know a better way to worship Him. But can anyone worship Him outside of His Spirit?
Even the world at large is filled with wisdom of their own. To them, God is completely in existent. Many societies by their (wisdom) laws have eliminated the worship of God.
Interestingly, the more man becomes wise in his very eyes, the more their foolishness is revealed. God Himself promised to make foolish the wisdom of this world—1Corinthians 1:19-30
Through Jesus Christ God revealed His wisdom and by Jesus Christ, the wisdom of man has been made foolish. So where then is disputing?
God is the source of all wisdom and He gives to who ever asks—James 1:5.
The wisdom of man, which is actually a display of his foolishness is the curtain that separates man from God. For by wisdom of man, no one can worship. But through Jesus who is God’s wisdom displayed, God can be worshiped.
Pause and think: How have you been worshiping God?
