Spiritual GiftsHow does the Holy Spirit empower the Christian through the Spiritual Gifts?

I think that you might get a dozen great answers this question, and all of the answers would be just impressive.  The Bible gives some great insight into this.  In 1 Peter 4:10-11, the Bible teaches us that the Holy Spirit empowers us to communicate the Gospel and to do the works of the Kingdom.  In 1 Corinthians 12:8-10 we find 9 works of the Holy Spirit or 9 ways that the Holy Spirit comes to the surface to give us the extra push we need to minister to others or to strengthen our spirit.  And then in Romans 12:6-8 we see how when we are guided by the Holy Spirit that we can minister in the same way that Christ Himself ministered to others.  When we read about the ministry of Christ we are amazed by His spiritual depth and power to perform supernatural feats.   I think for most of us, we have this feeling that we could never be quite like Jesus and while Jesus is unique in human history what we often forget is that He sent the Holy Spirit to help us.  In other words we cannot achieve what Jesus did alone and it was never intended to be that way.  We were always meant to partner with God and then as God works through us by His spirit we can accomplish great spiritual works.

In this Sermon

We are going to take a look at the Spiritual Gifts that we receive that enable us to minister like Christ ministered.
