Manifest the knowledge of God by your life

We can amass a lot of information about God if we are zealous about the things of God. But that information must be then converted to life. Otherwise it can cause more harm to us than good. This is because we are judged according to the knowledge we have – that is, if we are ignorant the judgment is less severe.

Paul actively practiced what he preached.

2 Cor 10:5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,

As a result, he could manifest the knowledge of God wherever he went.

2 Cor 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.

It didn’t matter if he didn’t explain it perfectly with words because his life spoke more clearly than his words.

2 Cor 11:6 But even if I am unskilled in speech, yet I am not so in knowledge; in fact, in every way we have made this evident to you in all things.

It is okay if a servant of God is unskilled in speech, but not okay if a servant of God is unskilled in knowledge.

Unlike Paul, Solomon did not convert the knowledge that he had into life.

1 Ki 4:29-30 Now God gave Solomon wisdom and very great discernment and breadth of mind, like the sand that is on the seashore. Solomon’s wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the sons of the east and all the wisdom of Egypt.

Solomon had more earthly wisdom than any man of his time did. Yet he forsook the Lord later in his life. This must be a warning to all who know a lot but whose life does not match their knowledge.
