Cana 90 – Third Week of Easter
Gifts? Of the Holy Spirit
“We gave you strict orders [did we not?] to stop teaching in that name. Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and want to bring this man’s blood upon us. But Peter and the apostles said in reply, ‘We must obey God rather than men.'”
So… after receiving the Gift of the Holy Spirit in the upper room got into quite a bit of trouble. The Book of Acts actually explains that the Sanhedrin wanted to put the Apostles to death! Some gifts!!
The Apostles had a major governing body wanting them dead for exercising these “gifts” of the Holy Spirit.
What are the gifts God has given you?
Do you exercise them? Why or Why not?
How has God made his desire to resurrect those gifts in you this Easter Season present in your prayer, or the prayer of your spouse?
Sometimes we experience resistance to our gifts. The enemy doesn’t want us to use our gifts and will use whatever tactics available to silence us.
Let us boldly proclaim “We must obey God rather than men”
