Getting Things in Order
October 6, 2020
Corinth can only be describe as a city that was filled with demonic activity completely overtaken in idolatry and overridden with extreme sexual perversion. The results of the miraculous manifestation of God’s power had its effect on this city and others like it.
The Apostle Paul may have been skillful in putting together messages, no doubt about it, but the affects that come from God’s powerful hand in any given situation is a hard thing to follow and a game changer for those who experience it.
1 Corinthians 2:1-3
2 "And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2 "For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
3 "And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling."
Testimony: There was an evangelist named Alfred Hinton that would come to our home town in Missouri back in the early 80s. He would make sure that he would only come into the meeting once the worship started. He made it a practice of not speaking to anyone before the service because he didn’t want to know anything about what he was were dealing with.
The power of God would always use him to minister in such a personal way through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. In the first three verses that we are looking at today we see that all of Paul's confidence came through Jesus Christ and he made sure that he didn’t get caught up in what he knew about them in the natural. He gave all the credit to Jesus for what happened in his meetings.
Father, help us to keep things in order and step over into the supernatural realm. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
