SAA Notes

In this chapter, look for understanding on what godly wisdom is all about. Verses 4&5 are good ones to meditate on.

SJA Notes

“The natural person does not accept the things of the spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”

How important this verse is when we consider those around us who do not follow Jesus.

There are some things that cannot be understood without God’s Holy Spirit.

That is the way He made this world, the seen and the unseen.

And how wonderful it is that even though we were once a “natural person”, now we have the mind of Christ! Now we can know the things freely given to us by God because of Spirit (who comprehends the thoughts of God).

We have a wisdom that the world can never know.

The world can never know the wisdom that comes from God.

* Father God,

Please help us to love and serve You all of our days.

Thank You that Your Spirit gives us an understanding of You and what You have given to us.

Thank You that our faith (from You) rests in Your power and not the wisdom of man.

Amen.
