Fast with Repentance and Feast in God's Favor!

“Then the Lord said to me, ‘Do not pray for the well-being of this people.  Although they fast, I will not listen to their cry; though they offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Instead, I will destroy them with the sword, famine and plague” (Jer. 14:10-11).

God himself Is the Value of his Gifts.

“ow if the foot should say, ‘Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,’ it would not for that reason stop being part of the body.16 And if the ear should say, ‘Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,’ it would not for that reason stop being part of the body.17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I don’t need you!’ And the head cannot say to the feet, ‘I don’t need you!’” (1Cor. 12:15-21).

Focus on the Giver not on the Gifts.

For the next few weeks, I would like to write about the way we should interpret the gifts, services, and works of the Holy Spirit in context of the unity of the fellowship of believers. As you are thinking about this, the elephant in the room is whether supporting the practice of the gifts of tongue and prophecy or not.

Some Call it a Scam; We Declare it the Grace.

Last time, I suggested a fellowship of prayer to enrich the koinonia of believers, and you might have thought, “Well…Isn’t prayer too simple an answer?” Yes, fellowship of prayer is a very basic thing that we already know, but one thing that we still lack to apply in our lives.
