Our Divine teacher - I I Corinthians 2

One of the reasons that many people - including believers - don't read the Bible is because they can't understand it. We would expect that to be the case for those who don't know Christ, but why do so many believers fail to comprehend the truths of Scripture? Maybe it's because they haven't asked for help from their divine Teacher. One of the Holy Spirit's chief responsibilities is to enable Christians to understand the things of God.

When looking at believers who know more than we do, we'll sometimes think, I will never be able to reach that level. The issue, however, isn't how much knowledge you have right now, but whether you are growing in your understanding. The Spirit will teach you what you need to know, not necessarily what others know. Because He wants to make us godly people, He'll give us enough truth each day to change our lives. He will interpret the meaning and give an application designed specifically for each person.

The Spirit's goal is not to fill your mind with information but to bring you to a deeper level in your relationship with the Lord. He wants you to understand the truth so you will fall in love with Jesus. Then you'll long to spend time in the Word, thereby getting to know Him even better.

But all these treasures of God's Word could remain out of reach if you never ask the Teacher to unlock them. Each time you read your Bible, ask the Lord for understanding. A wonderfully intimate love relationship with Christ awaits those who let the Spirit reveal to them the thoughts of God.

Upcoming Sermon Series
      Godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death. Any at moment, God can take from us life, breath and all things but doesn't despite our repeated infidelity. He calls us to repent and believe.

Last Week:
      Jealous? That doesn't sound very God-like. What is He jealous of? Can He be jealous? Isn't that a sin? These questions and more will be answered today as we begin looking into Repentance.
      Sunday's message is usually available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      We will continue our study of Repentance by looking into Good Guilt.
