A manifestation of the Spirit

“Now to each one a manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”  (1 Corinthians 12:7)  The Spirit of God is invisible, but He doesn’t stay that way.  He makes Himself known  through the lives of believers.  This is what Paul calls “the manifestation of the Spirit” (phaneros–to make visible).  It includes a wide array of activities and works of service that are part of every Christian life.  How does the Spirit show Himself through you?  What evidence is there that you are filled and following?  It is for the common good.   He fills us so that we will gladly and effectively contribute to the work of the body.  Friend, do others see the Spirit at work in you?  Do you help others because of the help He has given you?  “Be ye filled with the Holy Spirit!”  (Ephesians 5:18)  Ask the Lord for this promised help.  I will see you in the morning!  Pastor Don
