But Of Power
God’s Power 15
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. 1 Corinthians 4:20
It is very important for the Church to crave spiritual gifts and pray fiercely for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. If we talk too much without any of the gifts of the Holy Spirit or the power of God, people will get discouraged.
Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret? Now, eagerly desire the greater gifts. 1 Corinthians 12:29-31
If the power of God or the gifts of the Holy Spirit was not vital and important, the Bible would not have talked about it. We cannot really accomplish much without the power of God. It is even the power of God that convicts and makes people understand, when ministers are preaching or teaching. Without the power of God it will just be mere talk without result.
The Kingdom of God should be a matter of talk and power, not just talk.
May great grace be upon us, in Jesus name.
