THEME: GIFT OF TONGUES
“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
-During the great commissioning after Jesus had risen, He gave His disciples specific instructions to go into the world and preach the gospel. Those who believed in Him and be baptized, would be accompanied by supernatural signs like speaking in tongues, driving out demons, picking up snakes and nothing will harm them. Since we are disciples of Christ; we too have the opportunity to preach the gospel especially to those around us; that they may believe and be saved. Those who do not believe in Jesus unfortunately; will come to eternal condemnation. The Holy Spirit comes into our hearts when we believe and are baptized, and we receive these supernatural gifts. God gives us the gift of salvation; that came through Jesus Christ. Salvation of the body that brings about healing, and salvation of the soul that leads to transformation and eternal life. The Holy Spirit enlightens and empowers us through His fruit and gifts so that we may operate efficiently and accomplish His divine will. We are also called to praise God in spirit and in truth in our daily walk of faith.
Thank You Holy Spirit for Your divine direction, love, care and purpose upon our lives. Thank You for the privilege that You have given us to dwell in Your presence. We humbly ask that You grant many among us, our family members, friends, colleagues and the whole world, the gift of salvation, that they may believe in You and be saved. Guide us always Holy Spirit in the way we should go and enlighten our steps of faith. Instill in us supernatural gifts, talent and abilities for the furtherance of Your kingdom. Our Father who art in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen
