Last Sunday we continued our ‘Gifts of the Spirit’ series. We focused on Ephesians 4:11. I would encourage you this week to read the following verses in order that they are listed here in this blog:
- Read 1 Corinthians 12: 12 – 27 and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal, show, guide and direct you to understand what gifts you have in regards to being a part of the body here at CLC and in his body as a whole.
- Read Ephesians 4: 1 – 16 (spend some time on verse 11).
I personally believe that Ephesians 4:11 is a part of our faith today. I believe that we need Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Evangelists and Pastors in our church today. I believe that when Paul wrote these words to the church in Ephesus, he was stating very clearly the plural of each word.
I believe that each church in Regina, in Canada and all around the world that believes God is the creator of all things, that Jesus Christ is the Saviour and the Holy Spirit is active in our lives – needs to have the 5-fold ministry working in their church.
Please take time to read these passages. Send me your thoughts, questions, insights, comments and promptings by the Holy Spirit in regards to theseverses. We are the body. I am a part of the body.
I look forward to seeing you at church this Wednesday night or Sunday morning.
