Let Me Hide Behind the Cross

       Here is just a simple thought, but one that I desperately need to remember every day- every Spiritual truth that I have received, and every Spiritual lesson that I have learned, have been only through the Lord Jesus Christ, and not by my own intellect!  Oh that this truth might penetrate every corner of my heart every moment of my life!

       I Corinthians 4:7 says, "For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?"  Why do we think that we are so brilliant because of what we know?  The Holy Spirit is the one who reveals things to us!

       Take a look at this passage of Scripture- "But as it is written, 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.  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." ( I Corinthians 2:9-14)  Apart from the Spirit of God, we cannot learn anything!  We ought not to think that we are so great because of what we have learned from the Bible; we ought rather to give thanks to God for His graciousness in being patient with us and teaching us!  Oh, may we never forget to keep our eyes on Him; He alone is the giver of Life.

"But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world."  (Galatians 6:14)

  1. This is so true. We have nothing and are nothing without Jesus Christ. Thanks, son, for the encouragement!
