1 Corinthians 2:16 – We Have The Mind Of Christ

1 cor 2-16 700x400

1 Corinthians 2:16
16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Paul may have had Isaiah 40:13 in mind here. “12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and measured out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? 13 Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being His counsellor has taught Him? 14 With whom took He counsel, and who instructed Him, and taught Him in the path of judgment, and taught Him knowledge, and showed to Him the way of understanding? (Isaiah 40:12-14)

Who figured out the intricacies of matter that even brilliant physicists are contemplating? The questions go on because the universe is far more complex than one might imagine. The casual observer would have to say it just didn’t happen by chance. There is too much design in everything created including man.

Who taught God all this goes along with the question of where God came from? There is no answer. Where the scriptures are silent we must also be. We are so privileged to have the Word we do have. God made sure we would know the important stuff. The other stuff is far beyond our understanding I suspect.

However, Paul makes a most interesting statement. “But’ with that said, “We have the mind of Christ.” Nobody we know has counseled God, but we have the counsel of Jesus. We have the counsel of God. Christ is in us. We have all the thoughts and counsels of God. We have the very mind of Christ.

Our physical brains are limited and certainly do not know everything. Our spirits are recreated in the image of God. “And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him:” (Colossians 3:10). Our spirits know all things (1 John 2:20).

So how do we get some of that into our brains? We do so by the renewing of our minds. (Romans 12:2) We do so by allowing the Holy Spirit to move the mind of Christ to our hearts and minds through the Word.
