But… of the Spirit and of power. 

1 Corinthians 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
As I study the New Testament, I’m reminded how much the early Christians relied on the Spirit and power of God for living and ministering. The simple thought/question today is this: how much do we rely on the Spirit and the power of God in our lives?  I fear not nearly enough. It wasn’t with enticing words or man’s wisdom that Paul came preaching. And if anyone could glory in those, he could. But he understood something we too often forget – how much we need the power of God in what we do. Might we be like these early Christians who realized that things that stand the test of eternal value must be done in and through His might.
