The Mind of Christ
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:6–2:16
HOME GROUP DISCUSSION
-How does the concept of "wisdom" in this passage contrast with how Paul has spoken of it in 2.1-5? Why is this important for us to understand?
-Why is God's wisdom describe as a "mystery"? What can we learn about other places that Paul speaks of this wisdom (Colossians 1:26-27; Ephesians 6:19-20; 1 Corinthians 4:1)
-How has God revealed His wisdom to us? What about the Spirit qualifies Him uniquely for this ministry?
-1 Corinthians 2:14 says that the natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit. What does it mean to receive them? What effects does receiving the wisdom of God have in a person's life?
-The main point of the sermon was: God's Spirit in you, reveals God's wisdom to you. How might understanding this principle affect the way we think about our own salvation and the work of evangelism?
