The Gift and Gifts of the Spirit

When we give each other gifts it is usually to express love to another person. That is certainly an element of receiving gifts from the Spirit, but these gifts are not aimed at the individual. Instead, the intent of giving gifts to each individual of the church is to use those gifts to build each other up.

Let’s Pray for Holy Eyes – Not Church Eyes

Prayer is every believer’s responsibility and awesome privilege. More than ever in Canada’s short history, does our nation need a praying Church. Not necessarily just more of what we are already doing, but there’s more to prayer than we have pursued. Church needs to step into the “more”… There is a promise that continues to be relevant today though it was given at the dedication of Solomon’s temple: “if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

What it was, was God fulfilling his promise to empower his church for mission — exactly what we need today!
