Reliance Upon the Spirit

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 NASB
Paul’s Reliance upon the Spirit

1 And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4 and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

Rely upon the Lord Jesus Christ
On His wisdom
On His strength
On His power
==> that faith rests not on the wisdom of men
==> but on the power of God in the demonstration of His Spirit!

Be strong
Be of good courage
For it is the Lion of Judah who goes with you
Wherever you go.

He goes before you
He makes a way
He will not fail you or forsake you. -Deut 31:6-8

Do not be afraid
It’s the King of Glory
Strong and mighty
Mighty in battle
-Ps 24:8
Who fights for you and
Gives you victory.
-Deut 20:4

It pleases the Lord to make
Those who fear{reverently worship}
Those who hope and expectantly wait for His mercy
Strong.

Lean on Him
Be of good courage
For in your weakness
The Lion’s strength is revealed.
