Today's Verses : 1 Cor 7:25-8:13
Key Verse:

1 Cor 7:40

But she is more blessed if she so remains, according to my opinion; but I think that I also have the Spirit of God.

Footnotes:
In 1 Cor. 7:10 the apostle said, "I charge, not I but the (Lord)." In v. 12 he said, "I say, I, not the Lord." In v. 25 he said, "I have no (commandment) of the Lord, but I give my (opinion)." In v. 40 he says, "... according to my opinion; but I think that I also have the (Spirit) of God." All these words indicate the New Testament principle of incarnation (that is, that God and man, man and God, become (One). This differs drastically from the principle of Old Testament prophecy (that is, that man speaks for God). But in the New Testament the Lord becomes one with His (apostles), and they become one with Him; thus, the two (speak) together. (See 1 Cor 7:40 note 2)
