God's Spirited People: the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Bible and the Church today an Index

Between Easter and Pentecost I have been preaching a series of messages on the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the New Tetsament. we started with jesus promise to send power from on high for the disciples to be his witnesses at the end of Luke's gospel, then worked through the passages in the New Testament epistles that contain lists of the gifts of Holy Spirit. we then finished on Pentecost Sunday by looking at the fufilment of Jesus promise to seen the Holy Spirit.

Each of the lists of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are part of teaching on what it means to be the church and as we worked our way throughthe series that became the focus. The Gifts of the Holy Spirit are to be used in the context of being God's Spirited People.
