The Fourth Sunday of Pentecost
1 Corinthians 2:11-16—The True Wisdom
Among human beings, who knows what pertains to a person except the spirit of the person that is within? Similarly, no one knows what pertains to God except the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit that is from God, so that we may understand the things freely given us by God. And we speak about them not with words taught by human wisdom, but with words taught by the Spirit, describing spiritual realities in spiritual terms. Now the natural person does not accept what pertains to the Spirit of God, for to him it is foolishness, and he cannot understand it, because it is judged spiritually. The spiritual person, however, can judge everything but is not subject to judgment by anyone. For "who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to counsel him?" But we have the mind of Christ.
Luke 10:2 1-24—Praise of the Father
At that very moment Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, "I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him." Turning to the disciples in private he said, "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I say to you, many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it."
Lk 10:21-24 Knowledge of God
What type of knowledge do you seek? Is it scientific research? Is it business acumen? Is it a love of books? Is it knowledge in Arts, or Politics, or Humanities?
The human was made to know, to be curious, to question, to delve deeper, to hunger for more knowledge. There are those who can name every NRL player, others who study the laws of physics, others who quote Shakespeare, while others excel in online creativity. Yet we never seem to know enough. There is always more to discover and more to know.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus points to what is real knowledge – it is to know God, ‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see!’ (v23). It is knowledge that is sought by many. For others it is knowledge they cannot grasp.
The quest for God. To know God. To see God. To believe in God. To unravel the question and mysteries around God. Yet often knowledge around God is misleading or we go about it the wrong way. As Jesus says about God, ‘You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants’ (v21).
Knowledge of God is not lofty ideals or discovered through difficult calculations and volumes of reading. God is here, present, within your sight. God speaks to your heart. Knowing God is to know your true self, to know joy and inner peace. To know God is to know love. Amen
