YouTube illustration of the power of a pneumatic impact wrench

"My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power" **


Relying on God's power sometimes gives us unexpected results, much like using a pneumatic impact wrench can give unexpected results.

For example, this YouTube presentation:

.
**These words were spoken by the apostle Paul to the people living in Corinth. Paul never bragged on himself, he relied on the Holy Spirit of God to help him perform his service for God.

In this Bible verse, the Greek word pneuma translates to the breath, the wind, the Spirit of God.

Also from that word pneuma, comes our word pneumatic, or wind powered. I.e. a pneumatic impact wrench is air powered. This tool has many times more torque than a hand powered lug wrench.

Notes:
1. Source of this YouTube presentation is

2. Source of the Bible Scripture quoted is 1 Corinthians 2:3-5 NIV (link):
...

3. I came to you in weakness and fear,
and with much trembling.
4. My message and my preaching were
not with wise and persuasive words,
but with a demonstration of the
Spirit's power,
5. so that your faith might not
rest on men's wisdom, but
on God's power.
