Let It Flow

John 7:37-39

37 On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, "If

anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as the

Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." 39 By this he

meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time

the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Introduction:

God is moving - Thirsty people have begun to come to Jesus! God has promised that

when we come to Him "streams of living water will flow from within him" The Holy

Spirit - Unique parallel to what happened then and now - verse 39 when Jesus was

glorified = the H.S. was given - now when Jesus is Glorified the H.S. is given. Same

pattern as in the beginning -

* We want to Let the streams of living water flow in our lives - that’s why we come to

worship God - Fellowship together and reach out to others.

* Can not put God in a box and say this is how God works! - People have tried for years

to do this - 10 steps to this 5 keys to that, very well may be but God is sovereign,

simply put that means He makes the rules. Revealed some of the rules in His

Word, and He retains the right to interpret them correctly!

* God has been moving in our services - Manifestations of the Spirit - Through Gifts

* We have also seen the reaction of people as God has been moving among us

* Separate the Gifts of the spirit from the reactions to the spirit. Let’s look at the Gifts -

skim each of the them - Overview

1 Cor 12:1-23

1 Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant. { we are on the

right track studying the spiritual gifts } 2 You know that when you were pagans,

somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.3 Therefore I tell you

that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can

say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the

same Spirit. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are

different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. 7 Now to each

one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. .{True manifestations

of the Spirit Glorify Jesus not any man, or even a ministry}

Gifts are listed....

* 8 To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the

message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit,

to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another

prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds

of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are the work of

one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines

1) The Message of Wisdom - Speaking the Right word at the Right time - wisdom helps

us to make use of Knowledge. Direction from God for a specific situation

2) The Message of Knowledge - Speaking an unknown truth - Information from God
