I just read this over at Peter-John Courson’s Blog and needed to share it with you:
Any fellow ministers out there. Do not substitute:
…Being gifted for being Godly.
…Good advice for Good News.
…Reputation for character.
…A sermon for a message.
…Gifting for saving grace.
…Style for substance.
…Or doing good for knowing God.
…”Many bad men have had spiritual gifts”. Jonathan Edwards
…”It is possible to have the gifts of the Spirit while not have the saving work of the Spirit in the heart”. Charles Spurgeon
