1 Corinthians 2:15 (NET)
The one who is spiritual discerns all things, yet he himself is understood by no one.


Before Ugochukwu became a believer, all his friends were unbelievers. But when he became a believer, they were no longer comfortable with him because his speech and lifestyle changed drastically. When they realized he was not planning to go back to the world, they all left him.

He became very lonely because he had no more friends. He prayed to the Lord to give him new friends who would help and encourage him in the faith. The Lord answered his prayer after he joined the evangelism unit in church. He met people that truly loved the Lord and understood the scriptures. They could sit down for hours discussing scripture and sharing life experiences.

As Ugochukwu grew in the knowledge of the Lord, he was not only sensitive to the things that weakened him spiritually, he was also sensitive to the things that strengthened and sharpened him spiritually. He now realized that spending time with brethren and discussing the word (even over the barbecue) was not just 'hanging out', it was an important spiritual activity that strengthened and sharpened him. He later discovered that it gave the Lord great pleasure when His people sit down together to discuss his word(He started taking these meetings seriously.

As you grow spiritually, you will discern the things and habits that are not good for you that you previously thought were harmless. You will also discern things you do that are really good for your spirit. This is because spiritual growth increases our sensitivity in the spirit. This is different from sin conscious. Spiritually mature people are sure of what is wrong and what is right. But sin consciousness is usually because people are not sure.

Go into today asking the Lord to help you grow in discernment and grace.
