1 Corinthians 12:1-11 
The Holy Spirit is to build the church in unity and empower its ministry and outreach.
Encouragement and hope.
“There is no single truth that is more important to the believer.”
1. Let's seek to discover all we can about the work of the Holy Spirit.
  • Don't overlook the spiritual side of life. 
  • "If I can't see it, I don't believe it." 
  • Is to embrace everything related to spirituality without any sense of discernment or spiritual perception. 
  • The Bible tells everything we need to know about the nature and work of the Holy Spirit.
  • It needs to part of your experience in your day-to-day life. 
2. Let's seek to be filled with the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • It means that the Spirit gets more of you.
  • Being filled with the Holy Spirit means being led by or controlled by the Holy Spirit. 
  • So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. (Galatians 5:16)
  • Ask.
  • "If you then who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" (Luke 11:13)
  • • Ask in faith.        
  • But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. (James 1:6)
  • Ask with your whole heart.
  • You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:13)
3. Let's seek to discover our spiritual gifts and put them each to work in our lives.
  • He wants to help the Corinthian church to be more balanced in the way they put these gifts to use.
  • There are a wide variety of gifts, and the one thing they all have in common is that each gift is used to build up others. 
  • Gifts are defined by the benefit they provide.  
  • You have been given a gift that you can use to build up others. 
  • God's plan for you.
  • Putting your spiritual gift to use creates purpose into everything you do.
  • You're doing the work of God. 
  • You often know what God is expecting you to do in certain situations.
  • "As He determines."
  • Sometimes we find ourselves floundering, in desperate need to get back on track. 
  • This isn't a one-time experience, it's a day-to-day experience.
