:cool: Our Inheritance: Grace, Patience, Wisdom, and Power
by Rick Warren

Rick Warren talks about our inheritance in Christ, but on one paragraph he's made me think a bit: "As children in God’s family we are given “the riches ... of his grace ... kindness ... patience ... glory ... wisdom ... power ... and mercy” (Ephesians 1:7; Romans 2:4; 9:23; 11:33; Ephesians 3:16; 2:4). We also inherit eternal life and God puts his Spirit inside us now as a guarantee of all that is to come."

With regards to Romans 11:33, after reading the verse many times over and over, I'm not so sure I agree with him on this. To me it seems like he is saying that this verse is something that Christians have possession of, but to me it seems like the verse is saying that it is God who possesses the depths of wisdom and knowledge, especially if you continue into verse 34.

Any thoughts?

I think you are both right - God posesses it, but we have access to it in the name of Jesus.
