And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
Empty eloquence fades, but the power of the Holy Spirit within us speaks volumes. 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 reminds us: 'My message was not with wise words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power.' Let's embrace the privilege of being vessels for God's work, relying solely on the Holy Spirit.
