1 Corinthians 2:4‭-‬5 NLT 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.

When Paul ministered the gospel of Jesus Christ, he relied on the Holy Spirit. We too have been called to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and reconciling people back to God (Mark 16:15/ 2 Cor. 5:18). Instead of relying on our intellect and how much bible knowledge we have, we should ask the Holy Spirit to give us the words to minister the gospel. We may have gotten saved two days ago and only know a couple of scriptures, but if we rely on the Holy Spirit, we’ll have the right words to say that will encourage people to Christ.

Secondly, we should rely on the Holy Spirit at our jobs. Whatever task we have at our employment, the Holy Spirit can provide the wisdom we need to best handle the task. We may have been on the job for two weeks, but the Holy Spirit can give us the wisdom we need to easily understand our responsibilities. This could lead to promotions and sustainability.

We should rely on the Holy Spirit in our marriage, in parenting, and in every area of our lives. Whatever we’ve been called to do, let’s rely on the Holy Spirit.
