And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 1 Corinthians 2.3.

The message Paul preaches is the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. What he proclaims is not in vain since he is a living channel of divine life. With the gospel of the cross, he gives birth to many. Yet in preaching the word of the cross, what about himself? He says this: "I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling." He himself is a crucified person! Let us see that it requires a crucified person to preach the word of the cross. Here Paul has absolutely no confidence in himself. His weakness, fear and much trembling—his looking upon himself as totally useless without any self-reliance—are the sure signs of his being a crucified one. "I have been crucified with Christ," Paul once declared (Gal. 2.20). He further said this: "I die daily" (1 Cor. 15.31). It takes a dying Paul to proclaim the crucifixion. Without the true dying of self, the life of Christ is not able to flow out.
