The Holy Spirit is here called the Spirit of Wisdom, using a grammatical construction that in the Greek indicates the Spirit is the “source of” or “giver of” wisdom. In 2 Timothy 3:15, we learn that the Scriptures are “able to make you wise unto salvation. ” When God opens our understanding to see the truth of the Gospel, he enlightens us and imparts to us wisdom to know and act on the truth. He then gives us hope of future glory and assures us of that hope by “the working of his mighty power” in us. That is the very power that raised up Jesus from the dead.
And we pray:
Open our minds more and more, we pray, to understand Your truths. Let the “resurrection power” in and of You that raised Jesus Christ’s body from the grave raise up our spirits to live more and more a “resurrection life” of obedience to You. Amen.
