Understanding

A Christian has the mind of Christ, spiritual understanding by the Holy Spirit, and they also have their natural understanding, their natural mind, so we always have these two elements in play – no one has perfect spiritual understanding (which implies there is still an element of natural understanding in us all) and on the other hand, many have too much of their natural understanding, which can lead to worldly or human wisdom, at the expense of the wisdom of God. Spiritual understanding should outweigh our natural understanding. Natural understanding needs to work together with spiritual understanding and not be a barrier.

 

(See 1 Cor. 2:13-16)
