“The devil is a better theologian than any of us and is a devil still.” – A.W. Tozer
There’s a saying that knowledge is power. That may be true, but power can be used for good and evil. As Christians, we should certainly arm ourselves with knowledge, but we should also pray for wisdom to use that knowledge.
How much of the Bible do you know? How much do you have memorized? Can you explain your beliefs easily? No? Then no amount of wisdom can help you. The Bible is a weapon that must be used with discernment. The Bible says,
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12
If the Word of God is our weapon, we should be armed to the teeth against the attacks of the enemy.
If we are well-equipped, what then? How can we use this power? Only with wisdom. If we try to use this power selfishly, we will only hurt others.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. – James 1:5
If we remember to use God’s Word wisely, we can be effective for Him.
