Gift cards have become the most highly requested gift in North America... and with good reason! However, the card is only as valuable as the claimant's effort to redeem them. A gift card, if not utilized, is worthless. In a similar way, God has offered His covenant children many benefits and opportunities through the giving of His Holy Spirit - but we have to redeem them. Just as a gift card can only be used in the place which the giver has chosen, and is therefore limited in what it may be used for, we must willfully seek the places and the desires for which God gave us His promises and His power. This message names five promises/benefits available to us through the Spirit, and also indicates the limitations of those promises.
