And my language and my message were not set forth in persuasive (enticing and plausible) words of wisdom, but they were in demonstration of the [Holy] Spirit and power [a proof by the Spirit and power of God, operating on me and stirring in the minds of my hearers the most holy emotions and thus persuading them], So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of God.
I was reminded in healing school today of Donnie preaching about the power cord (click here for previous post)…
I so love that analogy:
The Power of God is accessed by plugging into the outlet
You are the cord
The Outlet’s power is at 100% so the Power in the cord is 100%
You have 100% Power to give out!
Thayer definition of power in the New Testament:
inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth
power for performing miracles
Today you have miracle working power (100%) in you to perform miracles
