—1 Corinthians 2:9-16
by: Ashea West.
Have you ever listened to the squawking of flying birds? They know exactly which way to turn and where to land based on their communication. But we do not understand their language. Paul pointed out that to understand God, we have to have the Spirit of God in us to experience this connection. The spirit that He has placed in us from creation can understand when He speaks, but our flesh cannot. This is why the Word of God seems like foolishness to those who do not have the Spirit of God in them. As a Christian, you have the mind of Christ in you—listen and let Him instruct you.'
