February 17, 2019

Speaker: Jon Thompson

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4:11, 1 Timothy 4:16, Romans 12:8, 1 John 2:1, Acts 1:12-14

Sermon Description:

Teaching, exhortation, and apostleship are three of the word-oriented gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Teaching as a role that informs, trains, prepares, disciples, and equips.

Exhortation as a coming alongside with encouragement as well as confrontation if necessary, a gift that touches on the internal life of other followers of Jesus.

Apostleship which is a pure leadership and expansion gift, pushing boundaries and overcoming obstacles as the Church continues its God-given work under the Great Commission.

Series Description: 

Since we believe with all our hearts that Spiritual gifts are the only ongoing guaranteed place of power to serve from, we need to once again build the common script and understanding among all that make up C4 in this season.

As we step out together, we all need to discover, rediscover, rededicate and walk in a power that is not our own, to do the impossible in this context we find ourselves. When we start using and growing in our gifts we will experience the joy that comes from honouring God, serving others and knowing part of our purpose in this life, that will ripple into eternity!

Spiritual Gifts: LOVE - Week 3

February 10, 2019

Speaker: Jon Thompson

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12

Sermon Description: When it is a gift there is a greater ease, there is a frequency and power, there are great results, there is more joy, and worship and Jesus feels closer, it’s a supernatural sweet spot!

The Love gifts (Administration, Helps, Mercy & Giving) are key to the church working right and Love gifts are secondary in the sense that they are all about supporting, building up what God has and is establishing through the leadership of a local church. This again is not about value at all but role.

Spiritual Gifts: Character - Week 2

February 3, 2019

Speaker: Jon Thompson

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12

Sermon Description: The spiritual gifts must access a place of every growing character, a deep deep reservoir of love. The gifts of the Spirit must be undergirded by the Fruit of the Holy Spirit which is first and foremost love. We all as Christians get at least one gift and the gifts are given for one thing and one thing alone the common good. To build up, to rebuke, to encourage, to challenge to bring life to the community! They are not given for rivalry or jealousy and they are given to be used, not to be hidden in fear or be suppressed for any reason.
