Random thoughts about Paul

My words were not delivered with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of Spirit and of power, so your faith would not be based on the wisdom of men but on the power of God. I Cor. 2:4-5

Ever consider the fact that Paul didn’t have the New Testament to preach from? When he spoke to Gentiles he was speaking to a group of people who didn’t consider the Old Testament sacred. So Paul, whose words are now revered as immutably sacred, responded to the people and situations he encountered with letters and sermons based on truth God’s Holy Spirit revealed to him. I wonder what he would think about his letters being used as law thousands of years later.

Holy Spirit, lead me into all truth.
