In this sermon, Joel Peers explained the Presence of the Holy Spirit throughout the Old and New Testaments. The spiritual gifts that God has given to us through the Holy Spirit are the manifestation of God’s Presence. Therefore there are more gifts available than just those listed in 1 Corinthians 12. Joel encouraged and challenged us to move beyond “the list” and reminded us that they are readily available to all believers at all times.
Joel and Katelyn Peers joint-preach on challenging concepts borrowed from Bill Johnson’s book “God is Good: He’s Better than You Think”. Too often, disappointment in life challenges our faith and lowers our expectations of God’s goodness, but as Joel and Katelyn describe, “Our definition of God’s goodness dictates how high our faith will go and whether our belief will back up what we pray.”
