I came to you in weakness—timid and trembling. And my message and my preaching were very plain. Rather than using clever and persuasive speeches, I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit. I did this so you would trust not in human wisdom but in the power of God.
1 Corinthians 2:3-5 NLT
- Pray to keep the message plain and simple
- Remember who Jesus is and what He did
- Pray for the power of God’s Spirit to make the change in their heart
- Pray for God’s Spirit to make the Church alive to them
We know you are unsure of how to go about this, and feel totally inadequate. You may even be scared to death. The message of Christ will come through anyway. God’s Spirit and God’s power will do it. Read 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 in the Message for more encouragement.
