1 Corinthians 2:4-5 And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God
People can be persuaded to do certain things or believe certain things by the power of suggestion from certain people. Of course, this isn’t what is being talked about here, because our faith needs to be in something more than just a belief. Our faith is in our living God. Paul tells us that when he spoke, it was not by natural, wisdom of men, but by power and demonstrations done by the Holy Spirit.
Even today there are many people who can talk and persuade others by the power of their message. We don’t need more powerful man-made messages or the opinions of others to guide us. Now more than ever, we need to seek and listen to the powerful message of God presented through the Holy Spirit. The powerful and life changing guidance of the Holy Spirit is the only thing that will make a difference in our lives today.
We need to be careful who we listen to and what message they are presenting. There are to many people with their own agendas and who are way off base from the message the Holy Spirit wants to give. Remember, God’s word says that (1 John 2:27) we have the Holy Spirit living within us and we have no need of anyone to teach us what is true.
Abide in Christ and listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit within to lead you and guide you in truth.
