1 Corinthians 2:7 Parallel
Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

2:7 But we speak the mysterious wisdom of God, which was hidden for many ages from all the world, and is still hidden even from babes in Christ; much more from all unbelievers.

It is of the highest importance from the standpoint of worship that we decide whether the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, worthy to receive our adoration, our faith, our love, and our entire surrender to Himself,

Which comprehends all Christians, and even
