“3 In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (NKJV).
The NASB says in the last half of verse 2, “And attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself” (Colossians 2:2 NASB). Jesus is the mystery hidden throughout the ages. It’s Jesus hidden in the Old Testament and now revealed in the New Covenant.
This is a big statement—“all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Always remember all means all. The word treasures is the Greek word – thesaurus. You can readily see where we get our word “thesaurus” which is a treasury of words.
All wisdom and knowledge are found in Jesus. The more you look to Him the more you will learn. He is wisdom and knowledge. He is the creator. He created everything so why wouldn’t He have all knowledge?
“For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16). We have the mind of Christ. That’s an amazing verse. We have the mind of the creator dwelling within us. But you say it doesn’t seem like it. That’s because we are using our mind which is very limited. We need to draw on the mind of the creator within us. Everything we will ever need to know is within us already. Our spirit is alive and is in constant communication with the Spirit of God. We need to ask for His wisdom and knowledge on a matter. We must draw on the treasures within.
Jesus said a good man brings out good things from the treasure of the heart. It’s in there. We just have to bring it out. We need to look to Jesus for answers to the problems of life. We need to seek answers to our work questions from the wealth of the hidden knowledge. We have the creator within so we should have creative thoughts that solve the problems around us in new and innovative ways. That is another marvelous part of being in Him. Ask and you shall receive.
