Gifts of the Spirit- Special Faith

Sunday April 30, 2017

Pastor Sydney spoke out of 2 Corinthians 1:20 and Psalm 57 for communion.  The key point is that we need to be intentionally thankful. Lagging indicator is something that is behind what has already happened and it is how feelings are. Pastor Sydney mentioned about how tired he was, so he’d begun to just thank the Lord for what He has done for him. In doing so it brought him joy. Mathew 6:25 had been read for offering for Mission Sunday. It is not the hearer that gets the results, it is the doer. Examine yourself and ask God what are you seeing first. Pastor Sydney uses the example of a rope with no slack. Referring to that there is no slack between God and His promise. God is the God of now. Sermon: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11. You want to desire the gifts. The nine gifts are wisdom, knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, to another working mighty deeds, prophecy, discerning of spirits, diverse kinds of tongues, and interpretation. There are three gifts that do something. Known as the power gifts are healing, working of miracles, and special faith. Pastor Sydney points out that we are a move of God. Don’t limit the move of God by being too busy. There are two kinds of faith, common faith and special faith. Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the assurance of what we hope for. Faith is the foundation of what is expected. Titus 1:4, John 1, Romans 10:15, and John 15:4-6. Hear it, believe it, and do it. Romans 4:19, Mathew 8:10, and James 2:22.
