依靠圣灵 [Rely on Spirit]





Book: 1 Corinthians (New Testament)
Author: Paul

1 Corinthians 2:4 :“And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,”

Today’s Meditation: As we use persuasive words of human wisdom to spread gospel, we reveal ourselves instead of God. We can only reveal God and bring people to God if we are in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power. The cross of Christ will not have any effect if we use the human wisdom. Thus, we can say that the truth of the cross cannot be explained properly using human wisdom. We cannot rely on just our mind and thoughts when doing the works of God. We should spend more time on praying instead. Our weakness is that we often wish to convince people to believe God with our own words instead of our experiences with God. If we use wisdom and words to convince people, they will have their faith built on rationale. However, if we rely on the Spirit, their faith will be built on experiencing God.
