Sunday AM Remix 3.20.11

Today was my first official Sunday as Community Pastor at FBC Harvester.  It was full of conversations, observations, confirmation to the journey the Lord has us on.  I hope to share glimpses of the work the Lord is doing through the church by posting what I am calling it Sunday AM Remix.  These will be a mixture of the notes, Bob-isms, and some of my own thoughts on what we experienced as a church family.  I hope that these can be a source of encouragement to you.  I will also post links to things that might be helpful as we begin to apply these truths everyday.

EMPOWERED
How Do You Fit?
1 Corinthians 12

“God has given gifts to each of you from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God’s generosity can flow through you.” 1 Peter 4:10

*You don’t choose, you use the Spiritual Gift that God gives you – Bob Ingle

13 SPIRITUAL GIFTS FROM 1 CORINTHIANS 12

1. WISDOM! v. 8a
*Not book smarts, but a smartness that transcends age, study habits, and human reasoning.

2. KNOWLEDGE! v. 8b
*Again, not book smart, but it is a divine help from the Lord to provide answers to things you are unfamiliar with.

3. FAITH! v. 9a
*People who believe nothing is impossible when God is behind it
*Tend to be prayer warriors

4. HEALING! v. 9b
*Not as always seen on TV, but the ability to pray and have God use your prayer to bring healing.
*All believers will be healed of every sickness, some will be healed on this side of Heaven and others on the other side of Heaven.

5. POWER/ MIRACLES! v. 10a
*The ability to be used by God in powerful ways to display and make much of His Name!

6. PROPHECY! v. 10b
*No longer used as fore telling example, a new revelation from the Lord.
*The Ability to forth tell the truth found in the Scriptures.

“But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men.” 1 Corinthians 14:3 (NKJV)

*Prophesying includes Building Up, Firing Up, and Cheering Up people in the name of the Lord.
*Long Horn Sermons – have a point here, and a point there, but nothing but bull in the middle – classic Bob Ingle

7. DISCERNMENT! v. 10c
*Being able to tell what is of the Lord and what isn’t.
*Remember – Satan is a counter fitter not a creator.  He is a cheap copy of the original masterpiece God has created.

8. TONGUES! v. 10d
*Used in two ways in scripture
— Personal Edification – a heavenly prayer language
— Edifies the Body of Christ – known languages as seen in Acts 2
*Always used to reach those far from God as a sign to unbelievers in a way that they would understand it not to bring confusion or disruption.
*Is to be done only publicly when there is an interpreter.

9. INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES! v. 10e
*The ability to interpret tongues as described in point 8.

10. MISSIONARY! v. 28a
*The ability and desire to reach other nations for Christ learning about their culture, their beliefs and going to them with the Gospel!

11. TEACHING! v. 28b
*The ability to teach and have people learn from you.
*Not the gift of Gab!
*Many think they have this gift, but when they teach, if the people don’t have the gift of listening, it’s a good indication that maybe you don’t have the gift of teaching.

12. HELPS! v. 28c
*The supernatural desire to do whatever it takes to help the body of Christ.
*These are the first in line to serve.
*They see a need and meet a need!

13. ADMINISTRATION! v. 28d
*The ability to think through details and logistics.
*It’s not just about being efficient it’s about being effective.
*Typically Type A type personalities.
