DAILY BIBLE READING
The Manifestation of The Holy Spirit
1 Cor. 12:1-11
As we have said about speaking in tongues and the fruit of the Holy Spirit as evidences of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life are further evidences of the person’s encounter with the Holy Spirit. These gifts are called manifestations of the Holy Spirit, that is evidence that the Holy Spirit has come upon the person. Though these gifts vary in operations, kinds and activities yet it is the same Holy Spirit that gives them all. Though they are given to individual but they are to benefit all people in the kingdom of God. Also we must understand that Holy Spirit distributes these gifts to individual as He wills. So there is no appeal in whatever He has given to you.
Point of Emphasis: The manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.
Prayer Point: Help me Lord to use my gift to profit the body of Christ.
