PURPOSE OF THE GIFT-4
Luke 1:15 “For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.”
Luke 1:16 “And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.”
Luke 1:17 “And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
Your life is more than just finish school, get married, give birth, build house, train your children, retire and wait for death!
There is more in that package called “You” than you have ever imagined. You have a very heavy destiny which only you can fulfil.
When John grew up he must have quickly asked his parents why he came and I’m sure they sat him down and gave it to him vividly. One day some people came to ask him some questions:
Luke 3:15 “And as the people were in expectation and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;”
Friend, life situations and men will one day enquire of you, who you really are. Life will want to know why you’re “living it”! The greatest tragedy of many lives is that life and people are confusing them with somebody else. It will be of a greater tragedy when you don’t know your identity.
John the Baptist wasn’t confused, he answered the question accurately. Hear him:
Luke 3:6 “John answered saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:”
John 3:28 “Ye yourselves bear me witness that I said I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.”
My spiritual father said, “Men may not know what you carry but you must know it and never be confused about it!”
