And my speech and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. 1 Corinthians 2.4.

The least amount of self-reliance will unquestionably take away our reliance on the Holy spirit. Only people who have been crucified know and are willing to know how to depend on the Spirit of God and His power. Paul, for instance, has himself been crucified with Christ; hence, when he works, he exhibits fully the spirit of the cross without any self-dependence. Because he uses the way of the cross to proclaim the Saviour of the cross, the Holy Spirit and His power support Paul’s testimony. May we say with our brother Paul: “Our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit” (1 Thess. 1.5). For though we may speak movingly, what is the use if the Holy Spirit is not working behind our words?
