1 Corinthians 2:12
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
The “we” of this verse refers to those who are born-again. Once Christ is our Saviour, the “spirit of the world” has been replaced with the “spirit which is of God”. Apart from the Spirit of God, we could never receive the divine truths that God has for us.
