"To those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God" (1 Cor. 1:24).

Power is something we can see with our eyes; wisdom is something we can hear with our ears. Jesus has both power and wisdom. He displayed His power in the miracles He performed; He demonstrated His wisdom in the words He spoke.

The Jewish people were impressed by miracles, signs, and wonders, so they sought these as proof of divine origin. The Greeks were fascinated with knowledge, wisdom and understanding, so they sought these as evidence of deity. The pursuit of the Jew was emotional, that of the Greek was intellectual.

Jesus was able to satisfy the need of both Jew and Greek. He is still able. Whatever a person's background, culture, language, race, sex, or creed, Jesus can meet him right where he lives. Our Lord adapts Himself to each individual, regardless of that person's particular situation. Jesus is the power of God for those who need might as a point of contact. Jesus is the wisdom of God for those who need reason as a point of contact.

We want to win people powerfully and to win them wisely. Sensitivity to the person and his unique personality and make-up is so vital. The Holy Spirit can help us make the right adjustment to win each individual. Jesus was so full of His Father's love that people were impressed with His wisdom and power (Matt. 13:54; Mark 6:2).

As His disciples, we are indwelt by the Source of all three of these qualities of love, wisdom and power: the Holy Spirit (John 14:12; 1 Tim. 1:7).
