Home Church Video ~ The Plumbline of Spiritual Gifts ~ Part 2

Would you like to know what God explicitly says we should think about spiritual gifts in his church today?[1] Would you like to live by the whole counsel of God on the matter?[2] Is it really possible to sift through all the counterfeit viewpoints and discover that God’s “real thing” is not so difficult to find after all? Can individuals, and little home churches, put their faith in what God has written even when surrounded by big name preachers who present their personal opinions as though revealed by God?

To all of the above I say that, “faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ”,[3] so join us in a journey through the words of Christ on the matter of spiritual gifts, and let your faith rest on every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.[4] The church will be far better off with us putting into practice the words of Christ on spiritual gifts than holding back out of uncertainty concerning God’s will on the matter.

If our true interest is, “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven,”[5] then consider God’s will as plainly revealed in his words, and join his work with all your heart, soul, and mind, for God’s glory, and the church’s good.
