Cletus Hull: The Wisdom of the Cross and the Power of the Spirit in the Corinthian Church

Minister in the humility and weakness of Christ crucified: the empowering of the Spirit producing the character of service and sacrifice.

The pastoral implications of Hull’s work remains perhaps the greatest contribution of this work overall. His proposals concerning maintaining Spirit and Christ, cross and power, wisdom and weakness in proper relations drawing upon the work of Paul’s first letter to Corinth bear meditation and application in the local church. For example, pastors are called upon to pray for expect healing provided by the power of the Spirit as the work of Christ’s atoning sacrifice upon the cross. Hull also reminds such pastors to minister in the humility and weakness of Christ crucified which he argues is precisely the empowering of the Spirit producing the character of one committed to service and sacrifice for the other.
