Let's Talk About the Power to Understand

by Kevin Alton

1 Corinthians 2:9-10

But this is precisely what is written: God has prepared things for those who love him that no eye has seen, or ear has heard, or that haven’t crossed the mind of any human being. God has revealed these things to us through the Spirit. The Spirit searches everything, including the depths of God. —1 Corinthians 2:9-10


The apostle Paul wanted the Corinthian believers to have faith in the power of God instead of human wisdom. The blessings God has prepared for those who love God are beyond human reasoning and understanding. It is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that the wonders of God can be understood. The Holy Spirit helps us in our understanding of God because the Holy Spirit is God—the third person of the Godhead or Trinity.


Questions to Discuss:

What are some unexpected things God has done for you?

What has God revealed to you through the Holy Spirit?

Why do you think the Holy Spirit understands the depths of God?
