This week in response to a question from the congregation we looked at speaking in tongues. Tongues is a spiritual language that comes with the baptism in the Spirit, which empowers believers to be witnesses to Jesus and to carry out God’s will for their lives in addition to miracles, signs, and wonders, and is available to every believer.
To introduce this topic, I shared my testimony. As an eight year old I was born again making a lifelong commitment. Then as a teenager in a very conservative church I prayed “God I need more”. God heard my prayer and I was baptised in the Spirit. Although I had never heard of anyone speaking in tongues (before the charismatic or Pentecostal movement entered my world), I began praying and worshipping in tongues. God gave me a freedom and passion that I had never before known. My Christian life was empowered and transformed.
We then looked at the Scriptures and considered this wonderful gift from a loving God and its use in private and public prayer and worship.
