The Role of The Holy Spirit in Your Life – He Gives You Spiritual Gifts…

SCRIPTURE:1 Corinthians 12:7-11 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 

THOUGHT: The Bible is referring to Gifts which are given to you by Holy Spirit when you receive His indwelling and then infilling as we have discussed in the past messages. One or more of the gifts of Holy Spirit are given to you for the encouragement, edification and building up of the Church, which is the people of God. So, in a sense the gifts are given to the Church. The nine gifts are classified as follows: a. Revelation Gifts: Word of Wisdom; Word of Knowledge; & Discerning of spirits. b. Power Gifts: Faith; Gifts of Healing and Working of Miracles. c. Vocal or Speaking Gifts: Speaking in Tongues; Interpretation of Tongues; and Prophecy. These Gifts in particular are given by Holy Spirit as He wills. So you may pray that He will reveal the gifts He has given to you so that you may effectively use them to benefit the body of Christ.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I surrender to You in prayer. I ask that the Gifts appointed to me by Holy Spirit be released in at the appropriate time, that I may be a benefit to the body of Christ. I have no desire for personal fame or glory, but simply wish to glorify You by walking in the purpose You have created for me. I submit patiently to wait for your perfect will to be worked out in me. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
