HAPPY EASTER and HAPPY NEW MONTH!
As we rejoice over the victory of CHRIST, let us have a deeper understanding about the gifts and fruits of the spirit; Remember, SAME spirit, but DIFFERENT ways of serving and manifestation in each of us: (1 Corinthians 12.)
1)The Spirit gives one person a message full of wisdom.
2) To another, a message full of knowledge.
3) Same spirit gives faith.
4)While to another person he gives the power to heal.
5)Also, gives to one person the power to work miracles.
6)To another, the gift of speaking God's message.
7)He also gives, the gift of speaking in strange tongues.
8)And the ability to interpret the tongues.
9)To another, the ability to tell the difference between gifts from the Spirit and those that do not.
I know we have read these particular chapter several times, but, today read it differently and think deep about it.
You see that Faith is a gift! So Christians should STOP telling people that, they do not have enough faith when they are going through a challenging time.
And not all believers must speak in strange tongues! So we should STOP encouraging and teaching people to speak in tongues by force by fire!
Healing and miracles are separate gifts. So, we should not be expecting pastors to be the only ones that can heal or perform miracles, it can be from your next down neighbor or friend or even you!
Above all, do we exhibit the FRUITS of Holy Spirit in us? (Galatians 5:22-23);
You know YOURSELF and people will SEE the fruits, so let us have a sober reflection today. SHALOM! 😃
