Understanding God’s wisdom through the Spirit

(8/26) |

Verses:1_Corinthians 1:26 ~ 2:16
Key Verse:14-16. But a soulish man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him and he is not able to know them because they are discerned spiritually. But the spiritual man discerns all things, but he himself is discerned by no one. For who has known the mind of the Lord and will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Topic:Understanding God’s wisdom through the Spirit
Emphasis:People who think they are intelligent usually deny or despise things they don’t understand. Verse 7 says “But we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the wisdom which has been hidden”. We have to receive “the Spirit which is from God” (verse 12) to gain proper understanding.
Meditate:These two phrases unveil the relationship between God’s mystery and us: “which God predestined before the ages for our glory” (verse 7) and “that we may know the things which have been graciously given to us by God” (verse 12)
Prayer:O God, thank You for through Your wisdom we have be predestinated before the ages for our glory. May the Lord cause me to understand this mystery through God’s spirit who dwells in me.
