In Luke 4:14-21, “Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him. He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.””
Jesus did not just say he had preached the best sermon that drew huge crowds or had large number of people who flocked to his church every Sunday. The devil himself could deliver the best sermon that even great and well-learned theologians today could not match.
A man of God wrote: “True Christianity is not just a matter of words; it is a demonstration of God's love and power to save, heal and deliver. Jesus did not just talk about God's power to heal and save, He demonstrated it.”
A preacher in Texas once shared a testimony that he had prepared a great sermon to speak during his coming Sunday Church Service. When he stood at the pulpit that Sunday morning, the power of God swept him to the floor and he was completely numb, unable to get up. He was the only pastor of the Church so his wife had to take over to deliver the sermon. When she began to speak, signs, wonders and miracles filled the entire church with healing and deliverance. The lead pastor was still lying on the floor immobilised even after the Church Service had ended.
