2.17.17 – 1 Cor 2:2

And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, ~ 1 Corinthians 2:3
These words were spoken by Paul, one of God’s most faithful servants, a man who is responsible for spreading the message of Jesus throughout the world, yet here he proclaims fear in testifying God’s word.
I have been witness to many people that I know have a heart for God as well as a story to tell but yet don’t feel equipped to do so. This could be something as simple as praying in front of others but yet they don’t do it out of fear they aren’t qualified and/or might say the wrong thing.
Back to Paul who was more than qualified to speak and debate any topic of his day. He was an educated Roman citizen and a studied Jewish man but he purposely put the wisdom of man aside to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus. In doing so he allowed the Holy Spirit to work through him to reach others.
We are always at our best when we rely on God to work through us. When we use our logic and our ways, his message can become distorted. When we put ourselves in a position of reliance on Him, rather than ourselves, his message always comes to light. If today you doubt you’re qualifications to speak to the gift salvation you have experienced, then I say congratulations you have all you need to begin sharing it with others, in Him!
1 Corinthians 2:2 – For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
