Telescope and Compass – Ephesians 1:8

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.

Hence, telescope

and compass.
