When It Becomes What You Do

Former post from previous blog…Brief Thoughts………. I have been mulling over the scriptures: mostly Romans 8:26-27 and the intercessory ministry of the Spirit to provide the things we “ought” to know.  In so doing and learning the Spirit provides us knowledge through the word of God, I have compared much 1 Corinthians 2 with Romans ...
