Union

by Norman P. Grubb

I Cor. 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” Christ, the Thinker. He doesn’t think my thoughts. He thinks His own thoughts. I’ve got a thinking Person inside me, that One in Whom is all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, and He’s thinking His thoughts in me. Now then, how that simplifies life! We have the Mind Who thinks His thoughts through my mental faculties. And that’s guidance, my brothers and sisters. That’s why I told you yesterday, guidance is to shutting your eyes, spinning your finger around and saying, “That’s the text, therefore I’ll go by it.” Guidance is a Thinker inside me. Check it by the Word of God, but there is a Thinker inside me and He is thinking His thoughts and His purposes inside me. And as I am quiet enough and detached enough from myself and others (I’ve got to learn some lessons there), that Person conveys His thoughts to me.
