“But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power. For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.” 1 Corinthians 4:19-20.
We grow in God the same way we were saved, through the power of God. “For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18. The Lord will not share His glory with man. Motivational gospels, 40 day gospels and the like are not the power of God but puffed up words, another gospel and another jesus. When we begin to understand the works of Jesus and what He accomplished for us on the Cross instead of just His promises, we will begin to see His promises…we will then see His power. Don’t allow the others to hinder your relationship with Jesus. Seek the Lord for a relationship with Him. He wants to speak with you, not through others but personally. He stands at the door knocking. The Lord wants you to know the power of God but it is only through one gospel…the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. – Donna Warren
