If we are to stand and represent Jesus Christ in this generation and to our societies we must be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Lord says that it is neither power or might, but by the Holy Spirit that we can live the abundant life we are promised and glorify the name of God. Our own strength and understanding will always eventually fail and mislead us. If we are not doctrinally sound and receptive to the Holy Spirit, then we cannot enter the fullness of what God has for us through the good and perfect gifts He is eager to impart to us. Refresh your spirit and be encouraged brothers and sisters. Our great God has something prepared just for you and He has sent the Holy Spirit as a comforter to lead us into all truth and righteousness. This is an hour well spent with the Lord.
There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. 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 12:4-11
