MORNINGTIME 2081

 

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit (1) THE WORD OF WISDOM; to another (2) THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE by the same Spirit; To another (3) FAITH by the same Spirit; to another (4) THE GIFTS OF HEALING by the same Spirit; To another (5) THE WORKING OF MIRACLES; to another (6) PROPHECY; to another (7) DISCERNING OF SPIRITS; to another (8) DIVERS KINDS OF TONGUES; to another (9) THE INTERPRETATION OF TONGUES:  But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11. So, do ya wanna be a super hero? Sometimes it seems like "everybody" wants to go to the movies to see the latest action flick with their favorite comic book super hero beating up on some bad guy trying to destroy the world. Some Christians will even try to spiritualize, (that's a big word meaning, "I want to see this movie so I have to find a way to justify the redeeming value of said movie"), the movie as a Battle of good over evil, or sometimes evil over good, whichever, and take their unsuspecting friends to see it with them to share in this wonderful Christian experience. Just for the fun of it, next time a Christian friend asks you to go to a super hero movie with him, ask him if he'd rather read and study with you about Moses, Joshua, Isaiah, and Jonah and their amazing exploits for an hour or two instead. Do they jump at the Opportunity? Or is that "old guy stuff" too boring? Try this. Study hard to understand AND LEARN TO USE the 9 Gifts of the Holy Spirit. He'll teach you how to use what you need, as you need whatever He shows you you need. No super hero can hold a candle to the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Learn to use them as the Holy Spirit directs and the Bad Guy, (Satan), will have nowhere he can safely hide to plan sneak attacks. You'll know his next move BEFORE he even thinks about it. To know your enemy's plans before he does, THAT'S SUPER, THEN, you'll Be Blessed.
