In geometry, it is impossible to draw more than one straight line between two points. Though other lines may start at the same point, only one will reach the second point. All others end up somewhere else. Likewise, a person who tries to focus on several goals at once has no clear orientation, and he will wind up elsewhere.
Likewise, a laser light is extremely precise in the path of its beam. When people are born again, there is a radical shift in where they place their attention. Do you remember the time before you walked with Jesus? What was your mind focused on then?
Today we want to explore why the mind of a new creation does not make sense to the mind of those not yet awakened into God’s Kingdom.
1 Corinthians 2:
11 For Who Knows A Person’s Thoughts Except Their Own Spirit Within Them? In The Same Way No One Knows The Thoughts Of God Except The Spirit Of God. 12 What We Have Received Is Not The Spirit Of The World, But The Spirit Who Is From God, So That We May Understand What God Has Freely Given Us. 13 This Is What We Speak, Not In Words Taught Us By Human Wisdom But In Words Taught By The Spirit, Explaining Spiritual Realities With Spirit-Taught Words. 14 The Person Without The Spirit Does Not Accept The Things That Come From The Spirit Of God But Considers Them Foolishness, And Cannot Understand Them Because They Are Discerned Only Through The Spirit. 15 The Person With The Spirit Makes Judgments About All Things, But Such A Person Is Not Subject To Merely Human Judgments, 16 For,
“Who Has Known The Mind Of The Lord
So As To Instruct Him?”
But We Have The Mind Of Christ.
