Where is Wisdom?
Looking around us, it may be easy to ask, "Where is wisdom today?" It truly seems as though wisdom is in short supply.
And yet Scripture tells us wisdom cries out in the streets, and sends out her messengers, calling to the naive and offering her riches to all who seek her and hear her voice.
We see wisdom all around us, and the very foundations of the heavens and earth were built by wisdom. How then do we grab hold of God's wisdom so we can see it change our lives and the lives of those around us?
Choose your connection speed above and join us for worship and a time in the Word, as we talk about the cry of wisdom, how vital it is we search after it diligently, and where the source of wisdom lies.

Wisdom Cries Out in the Streets
It seems obvious, but sometimes we don't seem to realize that the answer to the problem of a world lost in foolish living is wisdom.
Proverbs tells us wisdom sends out her "maidens," her messengers to offer the Word of Life to everyone everywhere.
We also read that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. This tells us there is no true wisdom or understanding outside of that which comes from above.
Scripture tells us no one can come to God except by Jesus, which tells us the only way those walking in the foolishness of this world can find wisdom is by coming to Jesus, accepting him as their personal Lord and Savior.
We are those messengers, every one of us who claims the name of Jesus, and Jesus told us to go everywhere and tell everyone the Good News of reconciliation with God through him. That's why we are answering the call to reach out to the 2.79 million members of the virtual world.
Currently there are more than 2,794,635 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 30,000 to 100,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift and as a monthly partner.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
