1 Corinthians 2:4-16

"My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power, so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power. For it is written:

'No eye has seen,
nor ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him."

But God has revelaed it to us by his Spirit.

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we many understand what God has freely given us.

This is what we speak, not words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.

For who has known the mind of the Lord
that he many instruct him?"

We have the mind of Christ!!!
Are you spending enough time with Christ to have his very mind in you? It is available to anyone who is consistently in his presence and in his Word. The Holy Spirit of God searches all things, even the deep things of God.
