***In Brief Summary

What is wisdom? Seeing Christ, His servitude, the cross, how He glorified the Father, and living in light of that.


(Chapter 1)

My preaching, whether in a church or to one person, should be centered on the message (the cross) rather than the form to show myself as impressive. 

(Chapter 2)

I may think I am so wise, but I must remember I don't know anything about God unless the Spirit reveals it to me. " For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?" (1 Cor. 4:7).

(Chapter 3)

If that is the case, why should I boast over any other preacher? Nobody has all the answers. It would be immature for me to make a special, secluded group if we are all the temple of God. The leaders are only doing what God gives them. 

(Chapter 4) 

So why should I strive to be a leader? The fame? The freedom? What about all that responsibility? The suffering? If Jesus is my example I cannot be arrogant, I am not the main character. 

(Chapter 5) 

So if we are all the temple of God, our allegiance to Him surpasses any culture. It doesn't matter what country you own up to, you are now a citizen of heaven. You do have rights, and you will have to give up those rights at times for the sake of the gospel.

***The Chocolate Milk

+ The final section (2:1-5) was of great benefit. Rather than paying mind to soon-to-be-eclipsed cultural values that could get in the way of our Cross-focused lives, Carson gives enduring principles from Paul on what should be at the forefront of our minds.
