Using Spiritual Gifts You Can Go for it

Acts 4:29-31

In the Word of God the church is often compared to the natural body. We are the “Body of Christ.” Gifts are as essential to the Body of Christ as our natural members are essential to our bodies. If we are going to live and work for God, we must move with and in the Spirit.

You Are Only Pentecostal If You Possess Pentecost

Acts 2:1-1
Topic: Holy Spirit Infilling
Many think of “Pentecostal” as being a denomination or a church we can belong to. However, “Pentecost” is something you experience, not something you join. All those who truly call themselves Pentecostal possess Pentecost. It is through the baptism of the Holy Spirit that we can receive salvation and become born again. This same Spirit gives us the power to be witnesses (Acts 1:8). So, it is when we receive this same gift that was poured out at Pentecost that we become Pentecostal. [ read more... ]

However, there is a champion that stands out; Barnabas, the encourager. That was his nickname; one that has stuck throughout the ages.

My thought today is built around a question. I’m not the first to ask it. I won’t be the last. "Can God prepare a banquet in the desert?” (Psalms 78:19, God’s Word Translation). And don’t tell me you have never asked it. “Can God provide in my poverty?” “Does God care in my calamity?” “Can God turn my hopelessness into hope?” “Can life and laughter spring forth from my dreadful, dilemma?” “Can God turn my pity into a party?” Yes. Yes. Yes. A thousand times, yes! I can hear a resounding, deafening “Yes!” Where is the proof? [ read more... ]

Discovering The Biblical Views Of Missions

Luke 24:47-47
Topic: Our Witness
I admit it. I’m soft on missions! After twenty-three years of missionary service in Africa, tears still flow when I hear songs like “People Need the Lord” (Steve Green). A sense of mission still wells up when I see the parade of missionary flag-bearers march in during our general conference missions’ service. Globes, and maps of the world—more especially of the African continent—serve as interior decorations in my office; signifying, as well, the interior décor of my heart. They constantly remind me of my destiny in life. [ read more... ]
