Ephesians 1:8 speaks of wisdom and insight. When we look within the book of Ephesians we find two passages that also refer to wisdom.
- Ephesians 1:15-22. “…that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ…may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation…” This section goes on to develop a big picture of Christ’s accomplishment.
- Ephesians 5:15-21. “Look carefully how you walk, not as unwise but as wise…” This goes on the give some advice for daily living in Christ.
So wisdom has a big picture – that we realize all that is in store for us “in the heavenlies” to use a phrase repeated in Ephesians.
It has a small picture — that we make use of wisdom in choosing a daily path.
