The astonishing power we have in mind and spirit… and ignore

This week in our Multiply Discipleship we are exploring the Local Church.

For this week’s general reading (and daily Scripture reading) GO HERE.

The Scripture for today is 1 Corinthians 1. I extended it for my own reading into chapter 2 since the thought process continues past the end of Chapter 1.

When I read these verses from Paul, I am always astonished at the power we have in the Spirit… and equally astonished at how I personally leave that power untapped. My challenge this week is not to talk about WHY we don’t use that power as the Church… but to simply start walking in that power.

No more excuses.

1 Cor. 2:10 is bold: The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. The invitation is simple and powerful… search the deep things of God. We have the Spirit. The Spirit searches all this out…

Go on an adventure!

Here is my challenge: move beyond the shallow questions. Those are the questions that deal with ME… I have to learn the universe doesn’t revolve around ME… so my challenge is to move into the mind of God himself. The deep things of God. Search out the deep things of God.

Paul leaves us with this incredible thought: “But we have the mind of Christ” (1 Cor. 2:16)

We have this astonishing power, along with an astonishing invitation. The challenge this week is to refuse ignoring that invitation and just plunge in.

The Spirit teaches. Let’s listen.
