Paul's Reliance upon the Spirit

1 And when I came to you, brethren, I 1did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you 2the testimony of God.
3 I was with you in 4weakness and in 5fear and in much trembling,
4 and my message and my preaching were 6not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of 7the Spirit and of power,
5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on 8the power of God.
