The School of God
It's one of those passages I had to memorize for a quiz back in Bible college. So, I can him-haw around it, but I couldn't even had told you what chapter or book it was in even though I did do Beth Moore's Bible study that centered around the verse. Today I looked it up. 1 Corinthians 2. It talks about us being able to understand things because the Holy Spirit reveals it to us. It says that God can instruct us because we have the mind of Christ. Now, I don't know about you. But I am so thankful for that. Because my mind is too full. Too shallow. Too confused. Sometimes in school, I don't feel that my mind is teachable. It just gets to a point where it shuts off. But, because I have the mind of Christ I am teachable. All the time. And what am I going to learn? This chapter talks about two things: the things God has prepared for those who love Him and what God has freely given us. Hmmm... mercy, grace, love, joy, hope, peace, eternal life. Yah, sign me up for that class.
