"When you read 1Corinthians 2:6-16 you learn that, left to ourselves you cannot understand God’s truth, God’s ‘secret wisdom’. That is, you cannot understand God’s age-long mystery: the truth about Jesus Christ and the salvation God grants to us through Christ’s crucifixion. Left to ourselves, you would not even think of the truth of the Gospel, it is so grand and so glorious that it wouldn’t even enter our heads as a possibility. ‘But,’ says Paul, ‘God has revealed it to us by his Spirit’ [1Corinthians 2:10].
Paul teaches us,
•God has revealed this to us ‘by his Spirit’.
•We have ‘received … the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us’ [1Corinthians 2:12].
•We are ‘taught by the Spirit’ [verse 13].
•The truths we know ‘come from the Spirit of God’ [verse 14].
•Because of this action of the Spirit in revealing God’s truth to us, we have, Paul teaches, ‘the mind of Christ’ [verse 16].
"The fact that those of us that know Jesus Christ, the fact that you know and understand what Christ did for us on the cross, is clearly the result of the revelatory work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts and minds."
This revelatory role of the Spirit is also taught by Jesus Christ:
('Praise God'...I'M Alive...I'M Alive...I'M Alive...)
