The mind of Christ

If we have met Jesus Christ and we truly know Him and we have received His Spirit the Spirit of Christ and we go after Him, we follow Him, then He puts his wisdom, His mind into us. He reveals Himself to us and we KNOW the will of God. We become ONE with Him, we have the MIND OF CHRIST.

There are not many people like that but there was a man who had a meeting with Jesus Christ and he was transformed. He wrote about this transformation, this MIND OF CHRIST in him, the Spirit of Christ guiding and leading him. This man was the apostle Paul. I read his words from 1 Corinthians 2:1

1And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. 2For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

6Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; 7but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; 8the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;

9but just as it is written,
“THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD,
AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN,
ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”

10For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.

14But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 15But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. 16For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ.”

Dear friend, can we say that about ourselves? Do we have the mind of Christ? Or do we follow our own mind? Many people are just educated. Many just know the Bible. Many just know what other people have told them. Very few are taught by the Spirit of God, instructed by Jesus Christ Himself. Very few have the mind of Christ. We can fool others but we cannot fool God. Do we have the MIND OF CHRIST? Are we led by the Spirit of God? Are we truly sons of God?

May Jesus bless you.
