1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
Man is incapable of understanding the things of God without the reconciling blood of Christ and devotion to His Word. Man is forever hindered by his desire to appease human ambition – the transforming presence of God’s Holy Spirit is provided to change us from carnal to spiritual. The Holy Spirit is not the servant of our whims – He is the agent of change. The more we dwell upon the comfort of this life the more we abandon the contentment found only in our hope for the next. The Holy Spirit was not given to simply empower us – He came to transform us. The fullness of God is not experienced in what we do – it is revealed in our humble acceptance of the Lordship of Jesus Christ in our life. We must pursue God’s Holy Spirit; not for what we may receive; but for what He wants us to become. The gifting of God is to motivate the glorification of Jesus Christ in every area of our lives.
