Whatever the Ministry we are called into, let’s build it firmly on preaching and teaching God’s word as a priority.
Jesus and the Apostles showed us this example.
They preached, taught the people and then the healings, miracles and manifestations of the gifts followed.
Putting preaching and teaching God’s word as a priority helps us avoid the pressure to perform and seek approval from the people using our gifts.
We don’t need to Prophesy except when led to do so.
We can open ourselves to occultism if our crave to Prophesy drives us such that we do not wait for the Holy Spirit to lead.
Let us focus on teaching and preaching God’s word and if the Holy Spirit wills, the prophecy can follow and we give it out exactly as He gives it to us.
We don’t need to lay hands on the sick or operate other spiritual gifts except when led to do so.
Let’s just teach and preach God’s word and if the Holy Spirit wills, the operation of the gifts can follow.
This way we will be absolutely dependent on the Holy Spirit and when He leads us we are sure to get the results.
The Apostles understood this hence they gave themselves primarily to the Ministry of the word and prayer.
Let’s follow their examples.
