A SPIRITUAL GROWN UP
“But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no man.” 1 Cor. 2:15
The perfection reached being led by the Spirit in vs. 6 rather than the flesh as in their past brings the believer to that place where he is able to examine "all things". He comprehends the movement of the times, and he realizes his own place in that grand system of the ages is overwhelming. It is the conviction born of this comprehension that leads one to say in life's darkest hour: "I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day" (2 Tim. 1:12).A spiritual man who is experiencing a grown-up relationship with the Holy Spirit and is able to discern all things and at the same time not be understood by others who are dead to these things or immature.
The easiest place to be spiritual is in public; the most difficult is home. The relationships at home are intimate and continuous, while our activities and impressions made in public are intermittent and casual.
