1 Corinthians 2, Part 7

What Does God Want Us to Know?

By Tammy Lacock

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” (1 Cor. 2:12, KJV)

Warren Litzman makes it clear that the average believer doesn’t know the things of God that are already given to us. He reiterates that we need only to read Paul’s epistles to know that, as believers IN Christ, we have received “the Spirit which is of God.” Yet, how are we to know the “things of God” if we don’t even know that we are NOW one spirit IN Christ. Paul’s message is the Cross. Through Christ’s death on the cross, we too died to our old lives and rose to a new life IN Christ (Gal. 2:20, KJV). There’s nothing in existence that can replace what God did at the Cross. Only through Christ’s shed blood are we baptized IN Him, not with water but in Spirit. Our old ways are washed away. Our eternal new life is Christ. Christ becomes our all in all. As believers, our lives are a love affair with Christ. 

These are the things God wants us to know!

Wouldn’t it be awful to live a lifetime only to get to heaven and find out the liberating secret that Christ was IN us all along? Waiting for us to acknowledge Him? Waiting for us to know these things of God that are already given to us?

We must allow the Holy Spirit to unclog our minds that have been misused by Satan for too long so that Christ may live freely and fully IN us.

Yes, heaven awaits, but why not know and live Christ NOW?!

About the Podcast

Loving the Christ-life!
Warren Litzman teaches life in Christ, the Christ-life, the gospel of grace taught by Apostle Paul..
Warren Litzman teaches the Christ-life, the liberating life available when the born-again believer realizes the Spirit of Christ living within is his/her only righteousness and only life. This gospel of grace taught by Paul frees us from sin and law, shifting our focus from self to Christ, relieving us from stressing over perfecting self by works and the guilt and condemnation that follows our inevitable failure at self-righteousness. It leads us into a much more personal, intimate relationship with our heavenly Father as born-again children of God, joint-heirs with Christ.

Christ-life Fellowship is a 502(c)(3) non-profit Christ-centered ministry serving worldwide. You’ll find Warren's books in the Christ-life store (www.christ-life.org/store) and Warren's teaching library at www.grace-media.net.
