It is expedient that what you don't discover, you can't recovered or make any tangible use of it, nomatter how valuable such things was.
 

It's unfortunate that most believers were ignorant of the deposits of God's fruits and gifts giving to them through the Holy Spirit at the inception of there salvation.

Though there is a gift of salvation giving by God to every new believer, many lose these gifts at inception because of ignorance of such deposits.

2 Timothy 1 : 6 "Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee. If you refused to take cognizance of the gifts of God in you, it will die naturally without your knowledge."

 

WORKS  OF  THE  FLESH

Before our redemption, we have been living according to the dictates of the enemy of our souls, the devil, 

Ephesians 2 : 2 "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the prince of the air, the spirits that now worketh in the children of disobedience."

Then we are being led by the lust of our flesh and doing many abominable things.

Galatians 5: 19 ~ 21 "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, '20" Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variances, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21) Envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that "they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

If you are heaven desiring Christians and you still found yourself doing any of the above-listed attributes, kindly go to God in prayers and fasting for Him to deliver you from the power of the flesh.

And you that felt that you are free from all the above-listed habits, wait until you read my next post on,  "YOUR UNKNOWN HIDDEN  SIN AS A BELIEVER".

 

FRUITS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

After you have searched yourself indeptly, and you found out that there"s no more traits of the work of the flesh in you,

You are now obligated to search yourself inwardly to discover the kind of fruits of the Holy Spirit given to you on your salvation day,

Ephesians 5: 22  ~ 24 "But the fruits of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, "23" Meekness, temperance, against such there is no law 24) And they that are in Christ have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts."

Jesus is the tree, and you are the branches, the tree can"t bear fruits by itself unless it enables the branches,

So therefore it's the utmost desires of Christ that you bear fruits for His glory if you are a believer in Christ, and you don't exhibit some of the above-listed attributes, please your salvation is still to be questioned, and this may be dangerous to you at the end of time.

John 15: 2, 5 "Every branch in me that beareth not fruits, He taketh away, and every branch that beareth fruits, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruits. 5) I am the vine, ye are the branches, he that abideth in me , and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruits, for without me ye can do nothing."

Your fruits as a believer in Christ will authenticate your salvation before everyone.

GIFTS OF  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT

After our continual fruitfulness in Christ, God will then choose some as a vessel of honor unto Him, to be used for special purposes,

And He gave them the gift to fulfill this mission. This chosen one is to work in edifying and perfecting His saints to be abounding in fruit-bearing. 

Ephesians 4 : 11, 12 "And He gave some, apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some pastors, and teachers, 12) For the perfecting of the saints, for the works of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ."

The teachers of His word and Music ministers in His vineyard falls also in these categories because it is God that also gave them the gifts they are using.

Choristers were all evangelists, therefore they must take cognizance of there music ministry because they are going to account to God about how they used the talents given to them.

All the peoples in this category were given this calling gift base on the grace of God, and not because they are better than the ones working with the fruits of the Holy Spirit, therefore we need to be humble and reference God in all things we are doing. 

Also, we should always crucify the works of the flesh in our life by regularly going to God in fasting and prayer so that He will help us in keeping our flesh into subjection for His glory.

These are what we need to consider.

REGULAR USAGE OF YOUR GIFT

 Having these gifts from God is not on a permanent basis, you can quench it or develop it to grow,

1 Thessalonians 5: 19 "Quench not the Spirit" As the adage goes, what you don't appreciate will definitely depreciate.

No wonder God address King David as a man after His heart because he regularly takes cognizance of the Spirit of God in his life,

Psalm 51: 10 "Create in me a clean heart, o God, and renew a right spirit within me "11" Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy Holy Spirit from me."

This is the regular heartfelt prayer of King David to God, likewise, it should be our heartfelt prayer, in other to also be a person after God's heart.  

STUDY THE WORDS OF GOD REGULARLY AND ITS RELATED BOOKS

2 Timothy 2: 15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

The word of God can be wrongly divided by us if we didn't give ourselves to  adequate studying of His words,

And by the reason of the knowledge of God's words in you, you will be able to stand before the noble peoples of the earth.

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

1 Thessalonians 5: 17 "Pray without ceasing" This is the master key to every outstanding spiritual exploit.

I implore you to always find time for prayer and fasting regularly.

If Jesus can find time to pray regularly during His earthly ministry despite His tight schedule, definItely I and you should have no excuse from praying rigorously. 

Mark 6: 46 "And when He had sent them away, He departed into a mountain to pray"

In conclusion, I admonish you to take the utmost cognizance of the gift of God upon your life and make adequate usage of it for His glory.
