Christians do not tap into the wisdom of the mind of Christ because they do not know their Bibles. And so they make decisions based on feelings, worldly wisdom, or ideas from people claiming to speak for God.
Most of us seldom give much thought to the Holy Spirit’s behind-the-scenes ministries. We open our Bibles to read and study God’s truth and rarely think of how He illumines our minds with an understanding of spiritual things. We pray, yet hardly ever consider the vital role He plays in that discipline.
Do you feel that you know Jesus Christ better now than you did when you started your spiritual journey? Or has your walk come to a standstill? Do you prioritize time with Jesus over other important things in your life?
