Natural or Spiritual

1 Corinthians 2:14 The 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.

It doesn’t matter how intelligent someone is, or how educated, or how religious. None of these attributes can bring understanding to the things of God’s Spirit. It is only by re-birth through Jesus, God’s only Son, that spiritual rebirth can take place. Only after we receive the in-filling of the Holy Spirit will it be possible to understand the written word of God or have the direction of the Holy Spirit. Until then all we can do is try to explain away the word we read in the Holy Bible or make guesses as to what and why things happen. God keeps things hidden from the natural person but seeks to draw every natural person into Himself through His Son. God will use those who have already come into Him to draw others to Him. Our question is are we letting use us to draw others into Him?
