Walking with the Spirit - "Gifted"
Posted by VCC on June 2, 2019 at 12:34 PM

This morning we are finishing a series we call, walking with the Spirit. We’ve already spoken about our being equipped and empowered by God through His Spirit as people of Faith in Jesus. Now we want to move into what some of you are familiar, and that is, being gifted by the Holy Spirit for what God is doing around and about His people wherever they *find themselves. Acts 9:31 (ESV) So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied. This verse can describe not only the early days of the church in Palestine but also here. We are equally ones who have been called-out from the rest in the world, into faith in Jesus, equipped and empowered by His Spirit, existing in the local setting (Judea, Galilee, or Samaria, Dutchess County). We live in relative peace, though maybe not as harmoniously as they did. They were in process, being built up, which is always the case; walking out the precepts and calling of the Lord, as the Holy Spirit came alongside them, to comfort, encourage, implore, equip, empower and gift them. And as a result…they multiplied.
