1 until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and expose the motives of your hearts; The Corinthians had not spiritually advanced very far yet. Paul speaks to them that they were not yet finished with God showing us our secret sins in our hearts, so that we can repent of our evil, selfish behavior. Chained down in the darkness of our hearts, like a light shining in the dark, Christ speaks to us or shows us something; each time this occurs, he has come to us. When you seek God, by waiting on him, quietly watching and listening, he comes to teach you about yourself and himself; he comes to teach you by revelation, revealing the hidden things of your heart by his light, and by his words that teach, encourage, and command you. From the Word of the Lord within: "He has come in every word."
