Words by our Priest-in-Charge:
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established. (Romans 1:11)
We are more than just physical being with a mind. We are all made up of spirit, soul and body. It only makes sense that in the Church, our interaction with each other involves the spirit, soul and body as well. God is spirit. And He communicates with us in the spirit. He imparts His revelation to us, through His Spirit, we receive it, and along with it guidance, in our spirit. Only when our spirit man is made alive by encountering God, we can truly be led by the Spirit.
“ As disciples, when we come to a crossroads in our journey, we most need the impartation of one whose life is proven. We’ve learned what Paul knew, that an impartation from his life and anointing was the ingredient needed for the disciple to navigate the hard places and intricate spots. Solid teaching is important but teaching alone cannot supply insight needed when we’re in the test to follow the Spirit’s lead without wavering to the right, or left. In the press, what multiplied hours of instruction cannot do, five seconds of impartation does! Like Paul who longed to reach the people, to physically get to them – hands on – Paul knew an impartation was needed to advance the Kingdom in their lives.
Elders know the principle and is the reason we often find them pressing – listening. Sooner or later we are drawn to it, too – to depths we’d never have known otherwise and the realization we’re really hearing for the first time. We understand and now (finally), we have it!”
(Adopted from Shirley Weaver’s Devotional)
Without spiritual impartation, we receive no spiritual revelation into our life. Choose this day, to allow the Holy Spirit to align us to Kingdom’s truth.
