GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

God is not an Indian giver. He doesn’t give you a gift and then turn around and take it back. “The gifts and calling of God are without repentance.”(Romans 11:29 ). In other words he doesn’t give you a gift and then later on he changes his mind and takes it back. GRACE is a Gift-Received-At-Christ’s-Expense. “The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” ( Romans 6:23b) Once you’re saved and have the gift of Eternal Life you’ve got it forever! “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”(Galatians 5:22) Has God given you a special gift? Maybe you have a gift like singing, or playing the guitar, or the gift of healing, or teaching, or miracles, or casting out demons, but remember, the greatest gift to have is the gift of Love! “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,  doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;  rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;  beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.  But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.(1 Corinthians 13:1-13) You can pray for these gifts. Be sure and use your gifts that the Lord has given you, and be a good steward for Jesus. Amen?

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
