‘Now, dear brothers and sisters, regarding your question about the special abilities the Spirit gives us. I don’t want you to misunderstand this. You know that when you were still pagans, you were led astray and swept along in worshiping speechless idols. So I want you to know that no one speaking by the Spirit of God will curse Jesus, and no one can say Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit.’ 1 Corinthians 12v1-3
- worship things that have no value and cede control of their lives in ways that lessens the image of God in them (idols etc) OR
- invite God’s Holy Spirit into their lives to bring comfort, encouragement and new direction.
