Paul’s Reliance upon the Spirit
1 And when I came to you, brethren, I adid not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you bthe 1testimony of God.
2 For I determined to know nothing among you except aJesus Christ, and Him crucified.
3 I was with you in aweakness and in bfear and in much trembling,
4 and my 1message and my preaching were anot in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of bthe Spirit and of power,
5 so that your faith would not 1rest on the wisdom of men, but on athe power of God.
