6 Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. 7 But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But, as it is written,
“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him”—
10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. 11 For 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. 12 Now 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. 13 And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.
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. 15 The 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. 1 Corinthians 2:6-16
I know there is a lot here however the unavoidable is this: Not everyone lives and thinks in the Spirit. As a matter of fact, i’d say the majority of those around you do not know the Spirit. Even safer to say, the majority of the world does not live in the Spirit. The world lives and thinks in and of the world. Hard to believe? Look around, just listen to 3-4 conversations today of strangers and see what you pick up on? You will hear of the following: career, family, pride, ego, will, money, sports, and on and on and on about all the damn things that will not mean a damn thing when they are dead.
Arguing or debating the ratio’s of “Spirit Dwellers” is too broad for our morning anyhow.. but stir on this….

You brother, in Christ, in restoration, have THE MIND OF CHRIST. Yes, you may not always access it to the best of your ability but He is IN YOU. YOU ARE A SPIRIT DWELLER. This places the bar much higher for your life and mission than the man next to you on the train or in the bleachers watching their kid’s game with you. SPIRIT DWELLERs are looking for the eternal benefit. SPIRIT DWELLERs do not take offense easily. SPIRIT DWELLERs breathe life, speak life, and live life in the audience of the HOLY KING and have a purpose that is founded from before time and WILL TRANSCEND TIME!
