Within 1 Corinthians 2, we learn that the Spirit of God works in our life to counsel, inspire, and instruct so we can fulfill our purpose in life. By accepting that Christ paid the price for our salvation, our life changes for the better now and continues to build momentum towards eternal victory.
The content of Paul’s message is Jesus Christ on the cross and the ensuing power received from the Holy Spirit for those who accept Christ in their heart. True wisdom then according to Paul is when a person is able to balance their Christian faith with life experiences in order to be more precise in their thoughts rather than only accepting one viewpoint and being closed minded to the amazing unseen qualities of God.
Paul’s purpose was to share the gospel message so that more would accept Christ in their heart and receive the Holy Spirit. He wanted more to discover this resource God gives through Christ and receive the power needed to fulfill the purpose God has for them.
The challenge for us then is to put God’s guidance into practice and it all starts with prayer. Prayer is our greatest power because we are speaking to the ONE who already has the answer.
This day with You Lord, we accept Your promise. We believe that the Holy Spirit will direct our thoughts so they will be absorbed internally and poured out as activities that we do at work or at home. The Cross is our turnaround point and we now have momentum that will take us to the victory. Amen.
