The True Wisdom

Old Testament

A Sermon on Jeremiah 9:23-24

Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.” (ESV)

Man believes he is autonomous; man and the real nature of his need; the error of glorying in wisdom or might; the Gospel; the only explanation of life; the true wisdom of Christ; safe in the hands of God.
