Reason why I wrote this book!

I feel that this passage of Scripture reflects
the reason why I wrote this book. 6. We do,
however, speak a message of wisdom among
the mature, butnot the wisdom of this age,
who are coming to nothing. 7. No, we speak of
God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been
hidden and that God destined for our glory
before time began. 8. None of the rulers of this
age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord
of glory.9. However ,as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love
him" - 10. but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things of God.
11. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him? In the
same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.  12. We have not
received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God has freely given us. 13. This is
what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit,
expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. 14. The man without the Spirit does not accept
the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot
 understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15. The spiritual man makes
judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man's judgment: 16. For who
has known the mind of theLord that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
