Humility and the Power of the Gospel

"The power of the glorious gospel is not the product of human genius or technique. We are weak and common, plain and fragile, breakable and disposable, but that does not prove fatal to the work of God. On the contrary, we demonstrate that God must be at work, for that is the only logical explanation! Paul’s humility sustained him, as it will all true servants of Christ. Incontrast to our message we are nothing. When we humble ourselves in the presence of the Lord, he will exalt us (Jas. 4:10)."

- John MacArthur, Stand (A Call for the Endurance of the Saints), ch. 3, p. 65-66
