THE NATURAL MAN DOES NOT DISCERN THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT.
"Now the natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, because they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned."
1 Corinthians 2:14
THOUGHT: The Holy Spirit is God's living gift, God's seal and promise. The Spirit is our assurance that what God began with Jesus' sacrificial death and our participation in it through faith and baptism, He will complete with Jesus' return. But the world cannot understand this great promise, just as it cannot understand many Scriptures. Without the gift of the Holy Ghost. Their eyes only see what they can touch with their hands and cannot fully see the truth that is in the heart of God and revealed in His Word.
Prayer: Father, I thank you for sending Jesus. , thank you for sending the Spirit. Spirit, I thank you for never leaving me. As I am filled with the Spirit, O Lord, fill me more and more until my will and my life more perfectly reflect your desires and character. Use me to bless others, just as your presence blesses me now. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
