1 Corinthians 2:14 (NET) The unbeliever does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Daramola observed that many things they taught in the church didn’t make too much sense to him. Even though he was born into a Christian family, he did not understand how a person would live for a kingdom that they cannot see. As far as he was concerned, life was about making as much money as possible and enjoying the money.
One of the first things that happened to him when he became born again was that it became clearer and clearer to him how empty and vain worldly possessions really were. They could no longer satisfy him, and unlike before when he sought to get satisfaction by seeking more of them, he now understood that the material things of this world didn’t have the ability to satisfy. He didn’t have this wisdom before. He kept running after more and more, and was never really satisfied (Eccl 1:12).
Daramola came to realize that the solution to the thirst and hunger in his soul was only found in Christ. For the first time in his life, he found rest for his soul (see Matt 11:29). He was no more seeking to be validated by things and people; he knew he was accepted and loved by Almighty God (Eph 1:6).
If you notice that the things of the Spirit of God are beginning to look less important to you, it is an indication that your faith is under attack. You may want to spend more time in prayer and be more careful about the persons you spend much of your time with (see 2 Cor 6:14). Unbelief is a spiritually contagious disease.
Go into today remembering that as believers, we are kingdom agents who live for the advancement of God’s kingdom. Everything else comes second (see Matt 6:33).
