A Study on Discernment

But…

Isn’t it wonderful when we study God’s word and realize that God never leaves us without hope.  Just when we think we’re doomed, God always gives us a way out.  That’s why for those of us who are in Christ “but” can be one the most welcomed word in all of scripture.

Read 1 Corinthians 1:24-2:16

Points to Ponder

  • Man is foolish in his flesh but God chose us in Christ to give us wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.
  • The things of God are foolish to the natural man
  • Godly wisdom is revealed only by the Holy Spirit.
  • But, we who are in Christ have the mind of Christ.

Something to Think About

The enemy is constantly at work trying to make us believe that we are unworthy, unredeemable, and undeserving. As “proof” he points us to our sins and failures. He knows if he can convince us of the lies he will bring division in our communion with The Lord. Ephesians 6:13-17 tells us how we can stand victorious against the lies of Satan. We do well to familiarize ourselves with these weapons of war that God has provided.
