1 Corinthians 2:6-13 - English Standard Version

Wisdom from the Spirit

6 Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. 7 But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But, as it is written,


“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,

    nor the heart of man imagined,

what God has prepared for those who love him”—


10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. 11 For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. 13 And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.[a]

Definition

God is guiding my life through the truths revealed in Scripture. I hear from God, and I have a growing awareness of what His Word says and what it means. 

Memory Verse

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:1-2

Get Started: As part of your Daily Time With God, read or listen to the Bible

You can read a physical Bible, or read/listen using a Bible app (we recommend YouVersion).

Priority = After you’ve spent time in worship, read or listen to the Bible. Plan for 5x per week. All of us occasionally “miss”...that’s normal. The key is to do your best to not miss 2 consecutive days.

Pray = Ask God to help you understand what you read. He promises to “lead us into truth” (John 16:13).

Plan = Decide what you’re going to read. We recommend reading at least a paragraph at a time…and working up to larger chunks. A predefined reading plan makes this easier. Here are some ideas:

 • Join the Church Reading Plan

 • Read 1 John, then Gospel of John, then all the New Testament (Matthew-Revelation)

 • Pick a book of the Bible and read straight through. If you are just getting started (or even re-started), we recommend you start in the New Testament.
