Today's message talks about our responsibility and duty as a church to share the Gospel. The Bible shows us that we are to be bold and that we are empowered by God to do so.
In this first message in a new series called "Reaching People for Jesus," we learn what the gospel really is. If we are going to share the gospel effectively, we have to know what it is and ensure that we are not misrepresenting this incredible free gift.
The Corinthian church had misunderstood the proper use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. They were all speaking during the service at the same time, and as a result, the body was not being edified. However, Paul has instruction for their proper use to ensure that no gift is abused and that the body of Christ is built up.
Pastor Wayne continues with part 24 on his study on the book of Corinthians. Pastor Wayne talks about praying for the gifts of the spirit and to use the gifts responsibly. The church in the book of Corinthians would speak in tongues to build themselves up, and in doing so, they just sounded like noise and did not edify the body.
Pastor Wayne continues his study with part 22 on his study on the book of Corinthians. Pastor Wayne discusses being a part of the church and how the body is affected by one body part. The church must work as one whole body with everyone working according to his or her gifts.
