Bible Commentary

1 Corinthians 2:16 is one of the simplest statements, but one of the most profound scriptures and promises of God in the Bible—we have the mind of Christ.

What an amazing statement and promise of God! Have you ever read that and just meditated on the wonder of it? Can we actually have the mind of Christ in our daily lives?
