SharpRemarks April 2018



I am excited about our church calendar.  For a "small" church we seem to keep busy.


One of our upcoming events has captured my focus.  Spiritual Gifts.  Probably the most misunderstood and abused of all scripture doctrine that relates to our Christian Walk.


I believe God  has called me to a disciplining ministry.  Over the years that has involved me in several roles for me to accomplish the task God has set before me.


For that endeavor God as endowed me with specific spiritual gifts.  You may question my effective use of those gifts, but I will affirm that their presence has embolded me to involve myself in the ministry opportunities that have been placed before me.


I am persuaded that without my belief and trust in those gifts I would have become a pew potato like so many of my brothers and sisters in Christ. Some have commented on my level of activity at my age but again I credit God's use of my life to that longevity.


Spiritual gifts are not some mystical hocus pocus but the result of our belief,trust and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his promise of the indwelling presence of  God's Holy Spirit.


The presence of God‘s Holy Spirit is what empowers us to work in the kingdom. The Holy Spirit is invaluable and plays a role in our understanding, our inspiration, our motivation, our strength, and our perseverance.  Just as the Scriptures have informed us the Holy Spirit truly is our helper.  Our relationship with the Holy Spirit is spiritual and intentional.


It is incumbent upon us to do all that we can to understand our relationship and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.


And for that very reason I’m very hopeful regarding the study We were about to embark upon “The Journey to Discovering and Using your Spiritual Gifts!”
