“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;…” (Colossians 1:9)
When it comes to youthful energetic and amazing speakers, then the past two Sabbaths will never go unmentioned. On 28th March 2015 was a Christian Education Sabbath. Amazingly, the tittle of the sermon was almost equivalent to the Learning for Eternity Sermon by brother Buruchara. Abednego Lang’at, the key speaker, paid special emphasis on the Paul’s epistle to that time’s new Christian converts of the Colosse (Colossians 1:9).
From his sermon, we learnt that all knowledge and true wisdom comes from God. This is evident from the fact that to this very date no king wiser than Solomon has ever lived. The definition of knowledge and wisdom from our schools may not always be true. In fact, nowadays we are more of degree-paper than knowledge-hunters. We are cultured to cherish the academic papers than loving our heavenly Father. But according to Job (Job 28:28) true wisdom is just to fear God and understanding is simply to shun from evil.
As a final plea from Br. Abednego was that just as Paul kept praying to God asking Him to enrich the people of Colosse with true wisdom, knowledge and understanding, so should we also keep praying for each other.
