The Day the Lights went on

As 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.

In 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).

Our 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.
