“These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual” (1 Corinthians 2:13).
In attempting to convince the Corinthians that his teaching does not come from other men, the Apostle Paul assures them that his message comes from God through God’s own Spirit.
And in this verse, Paul is specific in that he narrows the point down to the very words he is using, thus confirming verbal inspiration. Inspiration means “God-breathed”—that is, God breathed His message into the messenger and had him communicate His message with total accuracy.
The message for us is that we are to accept the scriptures with full assurance that they come from God and that we are to put them into practice in our lives in humble and confident submission.
