Mind of Christ

PRAYER-O-RAMA 2019 continues here on GUWG, where all week we’ve been praying through some of the most inspiring sections of Scripture together.

Here’s a rather mind-blowing thought: we have the mind of Christ.

That’s not my idea. That’s straight from today’s passage. Pray through it with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind.

We declare God’s wisdom,
a mystery that has been hidden
and that God destined for our glory
before time began.

None of the rulers
of this age understood it,
for if they had,
they would not have crucified
the Lord of glory.
However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind
has conceived”
the things God has prepared

for those who love him–

these are the things God has revealed
to us by his Spirit.

The Spirit searches all things,
even the deep things of God.
For who knows a person’s thoughts
except their own spirit within them?
In the same way
no one knows the thoughts of God
except the Spirit of God.

What we have received
is not the spirit of the world
but the Spirit who is from God,
so that we may understand
what God has freely given us.
This is what we speak,
not in words taught us
by human wisdom
but in words taught by the Spirit,
explaining spiritual realities
with Spirit-taught words.

The person without the Spirit
does not accept the things
that come from the Spirit of God,
but considers them foolishness,
and cannot understand them
because they are discerned
only through the Spirit.

The person with the Spirit
makes judgments about all things,
but such a person is not subject
to merely human judgments, for,

“Who has known
the mind of the Lord
so as to instruct him?”

But we have the mind of Christ.

(1 Corinthians 2:7-16)
