Wallis: apostolic preaching

Tuesday, June 22, 2010
    Feast of Alban, first Martyr of Britain, c.209
    But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
    —Matthew 10:19-20 (NIV)
    Apostolic preaching is not marked by its beautiful diction, or literary polish, or cleverness of expression. It has laid aside “excellency of speech or of wisdom”; it has no confidence in “persuasive words of wisdom” but operates in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.
    ... Arthur Wallis (1922-1988), In the Day of Thy Power: the Scriptural principles of revival, Fort Washington, Pa.: Christian Literature Crusade, 1956, p. 85 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You originate all true faith.
