We can’t self-generate wisdom. Jesus is our wisdom. “It is because of Him [God] that you are in Christ Jesus, who [Christ Jesus] has become for us wisdom from God: our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.” (1 Corinthians 1:30 Berean Study Bible) Jesus isn’t just our wisdom, but He’s also our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.
We can’t self-generate knowledge. Knowledge comes from Christ, Who is the only Source of knowledge and wisdom. “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge.” (Colossians 2:3 Berean Literal Bible)
If we know any truth, Jesus is the truth. “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’” (John 14:6 Berean Study Bible)
While many verses of Scripture tell us that we can only find knowledge, wisdom, and understanding in Christ, these three Scriptures we just read indicate the exclusive nature of Christ. These say that He’s the only Source. Also, God tells us to trust Him with all our minds, not depending on our own ability to understand. God also asks us to acknowledge Him in all our ways so He can direct our paths. If we respect God, we can depart from evil. (Proverbs 3:5-7)
