SPEAKING IN CHRIST
By Robert E. Hanna
"The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolish unto him: neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned ... BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST" (I Corinthians 2:14, 16). We are thereby enabled to "speak in Christ". It then becomes our own personal responsibility to faithfully expound the truth as emissaries "in the sight of God". As His spokesmen, we speak the words "which the Holy Ghost teacheth comparing spiritual things with spiritual" (l Corinthians 2:i3).
Our apostle consistently "boasts" of his ministry to the glory of Christ. He then, just as consistently, displays deep humility in the flesh. As members of the Church which is Christ's Body we have inherited this mantle of accountability. We too must unflinchingly stand for the truth, while simultaneously claiming no personal tribute.
Paul warned his son in the faith Titus, "There are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers ... whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not ... BUT SPEAK THOU THE THINGS WHICH BECOME SOUND DOCTRINE" (Titus 1:10,11; 2:1). And he charged Pastor Timothy, "HOLD FAST THE FORM OF SOUND WORDS, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us" (II Timothy 1:13, 14). "Though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of ... woe is unto me if I preach not the gospel" (I Corinthians 9:16).
