a teacher it was always a thrill when you would lecture and explain a concept
and see the light go on for a student; they got it. At school myself, I sat
through many classes of religious instruction but the lights never went on. I
enjoyed the stories like David and Goliath but to me the Bible was like any
other literature we read.
the Bible we are told that the natural man cannot receive the things of God (1
Cor 2:14); in other words, they don`t get it, the lights do not go on. To
receive a revelation or understanding of God`s life changing word, we must be
born again spiritually and receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit into our
lives (1 Cor 2:6-14). In this wonderful passage we are told that God`s wisdom
is a mystery to the non-Christian (v7-8) but has been revealed to us by the
Holy Spirit (v10).
spirit was made new when we were born again (John 3:3,5-7) and the Holy Spirit
took up residence in us (John 14:16-17). As we prayerfully study our Bibles we
are assured that the Holy Spirit is our teacher (1 Cor 2:13). The Holy Spirit
brings the word alive or quickens the word to our understanding; we get it, the
lights go on. We see like we have never seen before; our faith is strengthened
(Rom 10:17) and we are changed to be and to have all that God has for us.
