The Holy Spirit, Part 7: Miracles
Message by John Ortberg.
The church is built on the unity of the Holy Spirit, but often churches are divided on the very issue of the role and ministry of the Spirit. Well-meaning Christians have disagreed for years on the Spirit’s work. And the problems are not so much how the Spirit is working in the present day and who is indwelled with the Spirit. Rather, spiritual maturity of believers has more to do with love than it does with extraordinary manifestations of the spirit, as for instance, in the gifts we are given or the things we do as a result of the Spirit’s presence within us. In fact, in 1 Corinthians 13, Paul says the litmus test for the Spirit’s presence is indeed love.
