Through Different Eyes


"But God has revealed it to us by his Spirit" (1 Cor.2:10).

Disagreements between people often happen because one or more of the parties cannot understand or accept the other's view. Terms that are used might be; "You haven't walked in my shoes" or "You can't see though my eyes." In First Corinthians 2:6-16, the apostle Paul may be teaching us to see things through different eyes.....GOD'S EYES! These verses would be good for us to read and meditate upon. He writes about real wisdom. "No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began" (V 7). It is through this wisdom that we can get to see things through God's eyes. It is a permanent wisdom that will allow us to reach our potential as His people. "None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory" (V 8). This new vision is not available through philosophy or even the sciences, "but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit" (V 10). It is through the Holy Spirit that this wonderful new way to view things becomes available to us. Paul explains that his words to us came not through man's wisdom, but by the wisdom of the Spirit. We have that same wisdom at our touch through those Spirit imparted words. The Spirit teaches us the mind of Christ so that we will be powerful advocates and servants for Him. We get to see through different eyes...GOD'S EYES!

Have a great day... Make a difference... Love mark Phil.4:11
