Mercy Seat


1 Corinthians 2:6-12 (selected)


We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age . . . we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began . . .  as it is written:

‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’ – the things God has prepared for those who love him – these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.

The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God . . . What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
