Is it plain and simple?
It is so easy to get carried away. Paul had tried polished speeches before. Not much happened (this is detailed in the book of Acts). Am I depending on my cleverness or God’s power?
In His new plan, the order of the day is to depend on him. Plain and simple makes way for Him to do His work in people.
May we keep it plain. May we keep it simple. God will make it effective. That is His job.
You’ll remember, friends, that when I first came to you to let you in on God’s master stroke, I didn’t try to impress you with polished speeches and the latest philosophy. I deliberately kept it plain and simple: first Jesus and who he is; then Jesus and what he did—Jesus crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
