Proclaiming Christ Crucified | 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

power-380181_6401 Corinthians 2:1-5 (ESV):

1 And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4 and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

Paul proclaimed the gospel in human weakness and divine power so that believers’ faith would rest in God, not man.
