    We can fully understand the perfect mind of God, but we do have the living example of Jesus in God's word found in the Bible.
  • Mockingbird
    Who am I that I may instruct the Lord : his wisdom and knowledge surpasses all that I myself know : And at the same time I have the mind of Christ and I have an unction from the Holy one and know all things from the Spirit of God. I am lifted up !!! Praise God to His standards !!

    Without the grace of God n His mercy ,we are empty. It takes His wisdom to understand the words of the spirits.
  • Davison Songore
    We sometimes forget that this world is designed to tempt us and lead us away from the creator
  • Johnwalter Mugisa for verse 9
    It's beyond doubt that it takes the manifold grace of God for this scripture to be understood by carnal man,because we often think of the earthly posessions,since we're destined to be found worthy for true worshiping, John 4:21-24 ,Our hope should be set on things above not on earthly things,bcoz things on earth can exempt us from being true followers,and since we have to deny ourselves of all da earthly treasures,this scripture may focus on eternity bcoz we're not of the world just as Jesus stated in John 15:18-21 .Heaven is real.Be Blessed.
