SPIRITUAL MATURITY – PART TWELVE

2017 – SUNDAY 12 FEBRUARY

SPIRITUAL MATURITY
PART TWELVE

1 Corinthians 2:6-16
GOD SPIRIT PEOPLE CAN DISCERN AND JUDGE ALL THINGS ACCORDING TO THE MIND OF CHRIST.
“But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.”

At last we get to the result of spiritual maturity.
We have the mind of Christ – by which we judge all things – and make wise spiritual decisions.

1. WE NOW – HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST
God has given us the fullness of heaven – found in Christ – and revealed in us by the Holy Spirit.
To run around asking every halfwit what you should do next – reveals your spiritual immaturity.
It is your responsibility to know what God’s word reveals – about God’s will for you.

2. WE NOW – GROW IN GRACE
We are continually growing in grace as we search out and receive the mind of Christ within us.
Ask yourself this question daily.
Holy Spirit – what must I do to be saved?
To be saved – means to be made completely whole.
Wholeness and blessing – is the mind of Christ.

3. WE NOW – CAN JUDGE ALL THINGS
You now have the ability to discern and judge between that which is natural and that which is spiritual.
We are to judge between wholeness and completeness in Christ – and poverty, lack, sickness and death in this broken world.
Judging all things is an incredible grace from God.
Never say – “I don’t know.”
Find out what God’s word says about wholeness – and get it into your mind.

4. WE NOW – CAN MAKE GODLY CHOICES
You have to make spiritual judgements in order to make Godly choices.
1. Without a decision – there is no destiny.
2. Without a decision – there is no daring.
3 Without a decision – there is no declaration.
4. Without a decision – there is no determination
5. Without a decision – there is no delight

5. WE NOW – LIVE BY FAITH
Faith comes by hearing a word from God.
Hearing a word from God – is believing the mind of Christ.
The mind of Christ is revealed in the Bible and comes alive by the Holy Spirit.

1. Get a Bible and read it continually.
2. Listen for the Holy Spirit to give you revelation.
3. Seek for understanding of that which He reveals to you.
4. Believe you can make decisions based of your God word.
5. Behave in faith consistently so that your God word can work mightily in you.

BEHOLD – HE HAS DONE GREAT THINGS
