“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory” (1 Corinthians 2:4-7).
Today’s Morsel: Paul told the church at Corinth that his speech and preaching was not of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power of God so that their faith would not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Yet your faith stands in demonstration of the Spirit and power of God. When we are possessed with God’s wisdom, it will be seen in our speech and everything else we do as well. As Solomon said, “When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee” (Proverbs 2:10-11).
Sing: Give me oil in my lamp keep me burning, give me oil in my lamp I pray; give me oil in my lamp keep me burning, burning, burning, keep me burning till the break of day.
