Tandem Thought

1 Corinthians 2:11For 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. 12Now 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. 13And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.[3]
14The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. 15The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. 16"For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your glorified body?

Think about it: Your heart would no longer be desperately wicked. Every impulse of the heart would be true and just and acceptable. Will it not be so cool to not have to doubt ourselves; to not have to wonder if you are taking the wrong step or maybe fulfilling some selfish craving. In that day all restraints will be unnecessary. To be completely purified is almost unfathomable. I can't wait!

But even now we have a Helper who is closer to us than our dearest confidant. God sees the heart and we can tell Him honestly what our innermost problems and concerns are and the Spirit will teach us how to change. When we draw close to Him He will draw close to us.

Thanks Tim,

Your post is an answer to a prayer I had today.
