1 Corinthians 2:6-10a

At their 60th wedding anniversary celebration a very handsome and loving couple was asked by the Master of Ceremonies what topped the list of memorable items in their life together. They replied that at every intersection of life they could recognize the unmistakable presence of God. He was already present before they arrived. God does not show up in our lives by happenstance. He shows up with purpose, preparing for us an exciting and purpose-filled life.

Challenge to Holy Living

If you paraphrase verses 9 and 10 and it might read: What no eye has seen, ear has heard, or mind has conceived . . . those things God has prepared for those who love him, God has revealed to us through the Spirit. Paul contrasts the wisdom of man and the wisdom of God. It is the Spirit who reveals this wisdom in the life of the true believer.

There is a condition–a key–that opens the door to the secret wisdom of God. That key is love.
