Wisdom, Knowledge, and Discernment

This week in the third message in our series, The Gifts, John teaches on three of the gifts of the Holy Spirit found in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11: Words of wisdom, words of knowledge, and discerning of spirits.  John's overarching message throughout the sermon was that God still speaks today for the upbuilding, edification, and comfort of His people.  One of the clearest examples of a word of knowledge in scripture comes from John 4:16-19 in the story of Jesus and the woman at the well.  John emphasizes that Jesus is our model for ministry and then shares various stories from his life and the lives of others within our church.
