The Holy Spirit manifests through the gift.

Sun 15th-Nov-2015

Text: 1 Corinthians 12:1-7

Preacher: Johnson Chinaka (Lay Pastoral Assistant)

The topic for the day's sermon is an adaptation from the pulpit theme captioned; But You Shall Receive Power When The Holy Spirit Comes Upon You.

The Preacher States that the Holy Spirit manifests through gifts and abilities or otherwise what we know as talents which everyone has. (1 Corinthians 12 :1-7)

In describing talents, the Preacher said it is a natural ability that can be hereditary or learned through conditioning or training.

He therefore insists that talent should not be confused for spiritual gift which he defined as divine empowerment which an individual receives when he or she gives their life to Christ.

According to him, believers and unbelievers all have natural talents but only believers have spiritual gifts which is of the Holy Spirit.

Going further, he said spiritual gifts are channels through which a Christian can feel the presence of God and the demonstration of His power.

This gift is therefore important in the life of a Christian as it gives life to a hopeless situation which a natural ability might not be able to do.

In view of this, he made reference to the life of Peter in (Acts 12:1-12).

While making a prophet declaration for the church, the Preacher prayed that the manifestation of the Holy Spirit will silence untimely death in families where this has become a norm, he also added that God manifests his power wherever there is a threat to the testimony of his children, taking into consideration that the promises of God are meant for his children, that is those that have renounced sin and other forms of wickedness and embraced Jesus as their Lord and saviour.

In line with this, the Preacher said Samson in Judges 14:4-7 is another example of the manifestation of the Spirit of God.

In an attempt to free the children of God from the grip of the Philistines, Samson was born and the power of God manifested through him.
