Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:2

1Co 2:2 Save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. All his preaching centered upon this great theme, "To the Greeks foolishness, and to the Jews a stumbling-block" (1Co 1:23).

    Anyone who has stood before an assembly preaching or teaching knows how true verses 1-5 are. The Holy Spirit just takes over and it is not your words, but His. Those of us that may lack the confidence to preach or teach Jesus, know that Paul also relied on not his own ability, but the words of the Holy Spirit. AMAZING
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Paul reminds us in this chapter that we must be filled with the Holy Spirit to be able to discern things of this world. God's promises for us if we keep His commandments are also contained in "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." Let us love the Lord with all our heart and it shall be well with us.

    BSP; What you say is most certainly the truth, but we shouldn't think that God winks at the ungodly because they are not Christians nor spiritually minded. God knows how much we all know or don't, and how much we do or not do with the knowledge and conviction He gives. Remember how Jesus rebuked the hypocrites and pronounced, Woe unto you! Having a spiritual mind has to do with being of the truth!
