The Manifestation Of The Spirit…
From the depths of our soul, the “thing” that has been with us, in our heart our entire life, the one thing that was called out to us at a young age. That thing that was stitched together in our mothers womb. What is that for each one of us? What is that we know is the guiding item for our life that we are afraid to embrace? What is that God planted in our being that makes us who we are in God’s Kingdom?
The gifts that Paul listed are very clear…
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills. ~ 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 NKJB
These gifts come from God and are delivered to us through the Holy Spirit. Each of us is responsible for asking for our gift. If a person has the gift of healing, does that mean that person is going to be a doctor? No. It means they will be able to help other people in a capacity that improves their life in Christ. It could mean the person is a counselor to those suffering in their addictive behaviors. It could mean they are helping within a church setting with a staff, it could be a nurse, doctor or person practicing eastern or western medicine to get the body healthy. But these merely a couple of examples the list is endless that would, not only encompass healing but all the other gifts as well.
We work together to make the whole body of Christ within our community. We come together to share our experiences and to help one another in our endeavors to share the Good News. We soldier together in the Mission Field to bring as many to Christ Jesus as possible.
This is our life’s missions…to be the copy of the Holy Bible that people can experience, people can see and people can hear. It doesn’t mean we have to memorize the entire Holy Bible it means the Holy Bible has to be in us, around us and we living through it.
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
