Listen to My Message From Sunday, June 9, 2024


Today's Lesson (written):

1 Cor. 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For "Who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

The mind of Christ represents grace to share in the thoughts, plans and motives of God.

Paul identifies two kinds of people. Locate yourself:

There is the person who is pneumatikos. Pneuma is the word for Spirit. The person who is pneumatikos is sensitive to the Spirit and whose life is guided by the Spirit.
Pneuma is that which makes a man different from the rest of creation.

In 1 Cor. 2:14 Paul speaks of the man who is psuchikos. He lives as if there was nothing beyond physical life and there were no needs other than material needs, whose values are all physical and material. A man like that cannot understand spiritual things.

This is why the work of renewing the mind is so essential. We cannot have the mind of Christ apart from renewing our mind.

Jesus' Disciples only searched their minds for the answer

Peter went into next level thinking

Matthew 16:13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” 14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

Peter had the Mind of Christ - Next Level Thinking

16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

REFLECTION QUESTIONS:

1. What is the Mind of Christ?

2. What does next level thinking look like to you?
