God’s little secret

THE SECRET IS OUT

March 2016 (1)

1 Corinthians 2:10-12

10 But God has uncovered it for us through the Spirit; because the Spirit probes all mysteries, even the deep ones from God.   11 Because who in humanity knows the secrets of a human except the human spirit, which is in him? In the same way, no one knows God’s secrets except the Spirit of God. 12 But we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we can know the things granted to us by God,

God’s little secret

Paul had determined not to begin his evangelistic work in Corinth appealing to the Corinthians through flashy human rhetorical skill and secret wisdom. Instead, he simply preached the gospel to them, and trusted God’s power to change their hearts. Now he explains to the church of Corinth that they actually have received secret wisdom, directly from God’s Holy Spirit. That wisdom is the gospel itself. The Holy Spirit has uncovered the destiny of this universe, and it is all wrapped up in the reality of what happened to Jesus on the cross. God’s little secret can change your life, too.

LORD, thank you for uncovering your amazing secret – the sacrificial death of Christ to save us from sin.
