8/2/16 Belonging To Jesus Makes Us Seem Foolish To Those Who Don’t Know Him

“It is not only the mystery revealed to us that my fellow apostles and I teach that have been revealed to us by the Holy Spirit, but the way in which we teach is also led by Him.  But to one who does not have the Spirit of God within him, the spiritual, Godly things we speak of sound like nonsense, and he cannot understand them, because he does not have the Spirit to help him understand.  Only we who have received the Holy Spirit is able to understand and apply God’s wisdom that we learn by the Holy Spirit.  And we, as people who now belong to God, now seem foolish to those around us who do not understand the things of God.  Isaiah wrote, ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?’  But we now have the mind of Jesus, and the ability to understand His mystery.”
