From the Pastor's Desk: - Week of October 15, 2018
Theme: The Holy Spirit (Part 2)
Greetings to you and welcome to another great and glorious week
Last week, we went through some of the different names the Holy Spirit is called but this week, our focus will be on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:1 ”Christian brothers, I want you to know about the gifts of the Holy Spirit. You need to understand the truth about this.” NLV
In his epistle to members of the church in Corinth, Paul created an awareness of the Gifts of the
Spirit which he confirmed had already been made available by the Holy Spirit, to the church. These gifts are given to us for our profiting and for the edification of the church.
Totaling 9 in number, these gifts are classified into 3 different groups, each group having 3 each. The nine gifts include: the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, the gift of faith, the gifts of healing, the working of miracles, the gift of prophecy, discerning of spirits, diverse kinds of tongues and the interpretation of tongues.
These gifts are available to everyone who is a child of God.
The Holy Spirit distributes them among His children (1 Cor. 12:11) and He graciously allows us to covet after any of them we would like to possess (1 Cor. 12:31).
God BLESS you.
