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. – 1 Corinthians 2:10-11

For me, this is becoming a year of re-discovering the Holy Spirit.  I spent a lot of time over the Christmas season studying the Holy Spirit and quickly discovered again for the first time that the only real way to get the mind of Christ is to rely on the Holy Spirit of God.

Because I am somewhat of a thinker, I usually try to look at something from all angles and then draw a conclusion based on my observations.  While this may be a good study habit, it doesn’t always yield the desired result when trying to understand the mind of Christ.

God is by definition “God”, and we will never understand him because He is sovereign, but we can know the mind of Christ since we are supposed to have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16).

Jesus told us that the Spirit of God would guide you in all truth, and Jesus is the truth.

We get to know more about God the more we allow God, the Holy Spirit, to reveal Christ to us.

This is one of the reasons the Holy Spirit is so vital in the believer’s life.
