1 Corinthians 2:14


But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.




The “natural man” is any person who does not possess the Holy Spirit, namely: unbelievers.72 Every human being is a natural man until he or she trusts in Christ and receives the Spirit. The natural person can, of course, understand the gospel and experience salvation but only when the Holy Spirit illuminates his or her understanding. Paul did not mean that an unbeliever is mentally or intellectually incapable of understanding the words of Scripture. However, an unbeliever rejects, and does not accept, everything that God wants him or her to have.
Trust the Lord to help you adopt a positive mental, emotional and spiritual attitude with Philippians 4:13 as a personal promise to you from God.
Memory Verse: Proverbs 16:23
