1 Corinthians 2:6-16
6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Those who are not in Christ cannot understand God’s spiritual truths and they cannot understand the concept that God’s Spirit lives in believers. Don’t expect people to understand or approve of your decision to follow Christ.  People of the world will think it foolish. Just as a tone deaf-person cannot appreciate fine music, the person who rejects Christ cannot understand the spiritual truths from God. They have turned their back on God and will not understand the wisdom He provides for those who choose to follow Him.  Believers in fact, have the very mind of Christ.  Through The Holy Spirit, we can begin to know God’s thoughts. The more we know the mind of God, the more we grow to become like Him.  The world will not understand or accept this.  Are you spending enough time with Christ to know His mind?  Knowing the thoughts of God comes only by spending time with Him.  An intimate relationship with Christ comes only with consistent time in His presence and knowing His Word.  The way you live will show how intimate your relationship is with God.  The more you know Him the more you will be like Him. Don’t be like the world and close your mind to the things of God.  Open your mind and seek His will by knowing His Word and spending time with Him.

Have a God Day!
