The Wisdom Revealed By The Spirit

5 so that your faith would not be based on human wisdom but on God's power. 6 However, when we are among mature people, we do speak a message of wisdom, but not the wisdom of this world or of the rulers of this world, who are passing off the scene. 7 Instead, we speak about God's wisdom in a hidden secret, which God destined before the world began for our glory.
