1 Corinthians 2:6-16; John 14:23-27 Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away...
think about it.
What does the Holy Spirit provide for you that no one else can (1 Cor. 2:6-16)? How else does the Spirit guide you (John 14:23-27)? What have you learned or gained in wisdom because of the Spirit?
I don't know anyone who would say they didn't want wisdom. But as we see in 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 there's more than one type of wisdom--worldly wisdom and spiritual wisdom. Paul lets us know that only those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ, and thus have the Holy Spirit dwelling in them, have spiritual wisdom. He then concludes chapter 2 and his words about spiritual wisdom with: "But we have the mind of Christ." How awesome is that???
So what did you learn from Paul today about spiritual wisdom and having the mind of Christ? What can we do to make sure we're taking full advantage of this amazing benefit? Tami W.
