But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God 'and righteousness and sanctification and redemption 'That, as it is written, "He who glories, let him glory in the Lord."
(1 Cor. 1:30-31)

Our boasting, or our glory, is not in ourselves'it is in Christ Jesus. Jesus is wisdom. He is the righteousness of God. He is the sanctified one and the sanctifier. He is the redeemer and the redemption. Jesus is all in all. He is everything.

There is no room for you to boast in how wise you are. You can only boast in the wisdom of God. You see, everything that you are is yours by grace.

The Word says you are a new creation "in Christ Jesus" by virtue of the miracle of the new birth. (2 Cor. 5:17). Not only are you "in Christ," but Christ is also in you. (Col. 1:27). The Holy Spirit lives inside you. You are the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor. 6:19-20).

It is plain to see that Christ is in you and that you are in Christ. You have given your life to Jesus, because He has given His life for you.

God made Jesus to be your wisdom through the miraculous union that took place when you were saved. Jesus is your wisdom. He is your righteousness, your sanctification, and your redemption. These four things are found in Christ, and He is in you. Therefore, all of these things are in you.


Jesus is my wisdom, my righteousness, and my sanctification. I am redeemed. It's not by anything I have done, but what Christ has done for me through His death on the Cross. I do not boast in myself but only in the Lord.
