Second Reading for the 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

1 Corinthians 2:1-5

Summary: I came to you with fear and weakness, focusing only on Jesus Christ. My message showed the Spirit's power, so your faith would be in God's power, not human wisdom.

Faith in God's Power

When I came to you, brothers and sisters, proclaiming the mystery of God, I did not come with sublimity of words or of wisdom.

For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

I came to you in weakness and fear and much trembling, and my message and my proclamation were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of Spirit and power, so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom but on the power of God.
