Memorisation Monday
by Tim Canosa on May 7th, 2023
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.Philippians 2:12-13Our salvation is not simply a matter of believing in God until we die. We have been saved in order to love God and love pe...  Read More
For Good, God
by Tim Canosa on March 24th, 2023
The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who ...  Read More
Kingdom Gifts
by Tim Canosa on March 20th, 2023
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; ...  Read More
Other Tongues
by Tim Canosa on March 17th, 2023
Now, brothers and sisters, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or word of instruction? Even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds, such as the pipe or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in the notes? Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, ...  Read More
Love Gifts
by Tim Canosa on March 13th, 2023
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.1 Corinthians 13:1-2Lots of people have heard 1 Corinthians 13. It’s the classic wedding passage. But few know that Paul...  Read More

Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.1 Corinthians 14:1On Tuesdays and Saturdays we are wrestling with what the Bible has to say about “Spiritual gifts.” Paul, in response to a question about Spiritual Gifts, tells the Church to eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.We should take special note of what came before. Eagerly desiring spi...  Read More
Cessation vs Continuation
by Tim Canosa on March 3rd, 2023
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.1 Corinthians 13:8-10On Tuesdays and Saturdays are talking about ‘spiritual gifts.’ In fact, we are talking about a subset of spiritual gift...  Read More
Gifts of the Spirit
by Tim Canosa on February 27th, 2023
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken.Acts 2:4-6Many people (knowing I come from Pentecostal background) have asked me abo...  Read More
