2 CORINTHIANS 10:5 - Berean Lamp Memory Verse - (Jan 24-31)
The Berean Lamp Memory Verse for this week is:
“We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5).
In this week's Memory Verse, we're looking at how we should approach arguments and evidence that is presented against the Word of God. So many young people have nothing more than an indoctrination when it comes to their faith and they are taken by surprise when thoughtful evidence is presented that undermines that indoctrination. How should we react when presented with "evidence"? What should we do? Let's look at what God's Word says about how we should approach arguments, information, and evidence.
May we seek the Spirit's teaching and wait upon Him in all things, being patient for the revelation of the Truth. Even so, Amen.

“In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God” (Romans 8:26-27).
“But we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but just as it is written, ‘Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.’ For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.” (1 Corinthians 2:7-14).
