In Philippians 2, Paul told his readers to have the mind or attitude that Christ had. In other words, they were to think about themselves in the same way that Jesus thought about himself. They were to recognize their new identity made possible by Christ’s death and resurrection, and empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit. But in 1 Corinthians 2, Paul provides the incredibly good news that we already have the mind of Christ. It is not something we have to seek out. It exists within us because of the presence of the Holy Spirit. And, as a result, we can understand the things of God. We have been given the Spirit-empowered capacity to understand spiritual truths. That means we are able to read God’s Word and not only understand it, but we can apply what it says to our lives. And while there is much about faith that we may still find difficult to comprehend, we can rest easy knowing that the Spirit of God will reveal what we need to know when we need to know it.
