Interruption: "Perfect Gifts; Flawed Vessels Part 2"
We all have a mode we get into when we are trying to accomplish something. You may put earbuds in to drown out noise. Maybe you find a place of solitude away from people and distractions. It is all about positioning yourself to be productive without anything or anyone interfering with your goals or train of thought. But I often wonder if we do that with God.Without even thinking, we can get into a “mode” of life that we don’t wander from. There’s the weekly schedule, the daily grind, the monotony of a schedule, and the weight of responsibilities.  We can get so regimented in life we lose our sensitivity to where the Lord is leading us.As a church community, we are embarking into a six-week series with one goal and one prayer encapsulated in one word: Interruption. Interrupt our status quo. Interrupt our bias of what we think of the Holy Spirit. Interrupt our hate (of ourselves and others). Interrupt our plans.Interrupt the things we feel captive to. Holy Spirit, interrupt us and show us Your glory.

The Holy Spirit is not an experience to be had but a person to have a relationship with.

The fruit of the Spirit shows how God has grown you (maturity); The gifts of the Holy Spirit show how God is using you (ministry).

Gifts of the Spirit NEVER replace the fruit of the Spirit. It doesn't matter how powerfully you are gifted if you still act like a jerk.

1 – Motivational Gifts – Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12:28
2 – Ministerial Gifts– Ephesians 4:11-13
3 – Manifestational Gifts – 1 Corinthians 12:4-11
The devil can't take your gifts, but he'll try to keep you from using them.

Don't waste your gifts by wishing for someone else's.

Truths about the gifts of the Holy Spirit:
1 - None receives ALL the gifts.
2 - You can't earn a spiritual gift.
3 - As you grow in your gifts, God opens doors.
4 - Using my gifts glorifies God and blesses others.
How do you discover gifts?
1 – Walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit (Fruit of the Spirit).
2 – Seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
3 – Discover your gifts through serving.
When we operate in the gifts of the Spirit, we impact the Kingdom of God. When we don’t, it equally impacts the Kingdom of God.

Holy Spirit, this is my testimony: You have changed me. You have made me new. You righted my life. And today, I go after You and seek You with everything I've got. Whatever it takes, Lord, fill me with the Holy Spirit. Grow maturity in my life with the fruit of the Spirit and minister through me with the gifts of your Holy Spirit.

Empower my life for Your honor and for Your glory.
