Paul was not trying to win a debate, or an oratory contest in his presentation of the Gospel to the people of Corinth. He had no other mission, but to preach Jesus Christ, and His crucifixion. Sometimes in life, we become so concerned with how we are presenting God’s truth that we can miss the point of all we do, which is to preach Jesus’ crucifixion, death, and resurrection. The wisdom and illustrations of man can be useful, but it is of no eternal consequence apart form the power of God. Our message will remind us God’s Word is sufficient for God’s world.
