Spiritual gifts are given in seed form, distributed by the Holy Spirit. WISDOM seeks them out. Understanding matures you in them, and knowledge brings skill. It’s the three legged stool of potential. One missing leg will throw off the balance.
None of this means a thing unless our gifts are activated by faith! Stepping out! These signs will follow them that believe, in my name they shall … Mk 16:15-17 Beloved desire spiritual gifts, but then I show you a more excellent way. Love, love, love. Heals all wounds, wins all battles, endures all things; it doesn’t give up, it is not puffed up … desires Christ to be perfected in others. Love will lay it all down, throw the crown to go find you. Shed the robe, take up the cross, to free, heal, and keep you! *John let go, died alone, so CHRIST could have what was John’s own … brethren. That was love.
The gifts are a promise, a token, and part. It’s not where you finish, it’s only the start. A portion of heaven come from above, the maiden voyage of Noah’s dove … of all these what remains is love, tested, and tried- of all these things endure and abide … in LOVE. Remember Joseph’s coat and colors, how he was despised of his own brothers? They put him into foreign hands, the prince a slave in heathen lands …They will call you names, the lord of flies, your coat of colors will be despised, but you will learn to shake that dirt, and take his name to the ends of the earth. For a heart in famine will listen close, they won’t deny the Holy Ghost … to feed them. For whom they rejected will have HIS day, His light will shine and won’t go away. And nations will come with open sack, and the ones that bow will have no lack. For Joseph the Prince they left to die, is the apple of His Father’s eye. No less are you no less am I, whom love Him. So let not bitter the bitter thing be, call upon heaven and deeply breath! Remember His sacrifice, remember the blood, remember love comes in like a flood, let it have you.
When John was not yet cast into prison. –
He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. *He must increase, but I must decrease.
-John The Baptizer
