Is your church alive? Is it on fire? Are the power and presence of the Holy Spirit something that you feel and experience when you meet to worship the Lord with your brothers and sisters in Christ? Do the services bring blessings? Is the reality of God’s presence so real that you know without a shadow of doubt that God has spoken to you and you come away feeling challenged, edified and brought closer in your relationship to the Lord?
In many churches there is evidence that the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are not operating as the scriptures indicate they should, and so it is little wonder that they are bereft of the power which God wants to make manifest through His people in His church and in the world.
