The Power In The Word

“God certainly can use eloquence and desires lives befitting the sanctity of our subject matter, but his Spirit uses the Word itself to fulfil his saving and sanctifying purposes.

The human efforts of the greatest preachers are still too weak and sin-tainted to be responsible for others’ eternal destinies. For this reason, God infuses his Word with His own spiritual power. The efficacy of the truths in God’s message rather than any virtue in the messenger transforms hearts.”
