Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant. I Corinthians 12:1
The gifts of the Spirit are likened to the organs of your body in that they produce different ministries in the body of Christ! In the natural body, the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys etc. all have different functions that give life to the body and so it is with spiritual gifts, they give spiritual life to the body of Christ!
Imagine that the body of Christ is the exact expression of Jesus in the earth and so we are with all the gifts of His Spirit in us to function as He did before His ascension! He is the Head and we are His body of believers called to do the greater works of the Spirit in His stead! Remember the apostle Paul said that we are ambassadors, called to represent the Kingdom of God on earth.
The true church of Jesus Christ is not a place to go, but a supernatural Person to be, to do that which is the ministry of the Spirit within the earth! We are His body and individually members of Him! So with this in mind set your sights on the kingdom and not on the things of this world because we are the supernatural people of God called to do His work!
That we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ. Ephesians 4:14,15
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
