Understanding our Spiritual Gifts

SUMMARY:

You are gifted by God to serve God.

Scripture reading: 1 Corinthians 12:1 - 11 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
it is also the end of our focus on our mission as followers of Christ.

The themes are - grace, giftedness, calling, christian maturity, hope.

If you have been touched by this message but have never invited Jesus Christ into your heart, today is the day of salvation dear friend. So we invite you to pray with us this prayer with all your heart. "Dear God, I believe you send your Son Jesus Christ to die for my sins. I believe He rose again and gives me forgiveness.

Preached at Scott Street Church, on Sunday, October 27, 2019

Summary: God’s call to mission includes bringing someone with us. The themes are - healing, following Christ’s example, hope.

Scripture reading: Luke 8:40-53

40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. 41 Then a man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying. As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years,[c] but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. 45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” 46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” 47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.” 49 While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.” 50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” 51 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.” 53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.

Scripture Reading John 13:1-17

Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet

13 It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”

7 Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

8 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”

Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

9 “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”

10 Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash each other's feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them."

If you have been touched by this message but have never invited Jesus Christ into your heart, today is the day of salvation dear friend. So we invite you to pray with us this prayer. "Dear God, I believe you send your Son Jesus Christ to die for my sins. I believe He rose again and gives me forgiveness. I make him Lord of my life and I ask him to please enter into my heart.

Scripture Reading

Hebrews 10:19-25

"19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.  23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

Scripture Matthew 9:9 - 13 9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.

10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’[a] For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

The Keys of The Kingdom

Preached at Scott Street Church, on Sunday, September 22, 2019

Scripture: Matthew 16:13-19

Jesus was talking with His disciples in Matthew 16, asking them what they had heard about who He was.  They had a variety of answers of what they had heard, but then Jesus gets more personal and asks them directly – who do YOU say that I am?

Peter, inspired by God, answers correctly that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and Jesus then tells them all that this truth is what He would build His church on – the truth that Jesus was and is the Son of God.

He then tells them that based on their understanding of this truth – this rock – that He would give them two special keys: one would loose the power of God on earth, and the other would bind up the power of God on earth.  Both of these keys are available still today – we have the power to set heaven’s power free on earth or to bind it up.  When we live our lives based on the rock of truth that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, then these two keys are in our hands.

If you have been touched by this message but have never invited Jesus Christ into your heart, today is the day of salvation dear friend. So we invite you to pray with us this prayer. "Dear God, I believe you send your Son Jesus Christ to die for my sins. I believe He rose again and gives me forgiveness. I make him Lord of my life and I ask him to please enter into my heart.

Preached at Scott Street Church, on Sunday, September 15, 2019

SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 13:10-16

Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. 11 Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow. 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. 13 Whoever scorns instruction will pay for it, but whoever respects a command is rewarded. 14 The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death. 15 Good judgment wins favour, but the way of the unfaithful leads to their destruction.[a] 16 All who are prudent act with[b] knowledge, but fools expose their folly. THEMES: - Managing our disappointments - Trusting in God’s leading - Perseverance - God’s grace and care.
