The Bible teaches us that we are to be filled with God's Spirit and that God's presence and grace is manifested among his people as they serve, love, and minister to one another. Yet some of the gifts that God offers to his people aren't commonly seen in many churches today. Gifts of prophecy, healing, tongues, and other supernatural gifts of God seem to be absent, and many Christians are unsure how to cultivate an atmosphere where God's Spirit can work while remaining committed to the foundational truth of God's Word.

How can Christians pursue and implement the miraculous gifts of the Spirit without falling into fanatical excess and splitting the church in the process? In Practicing the Power, pastor and author Sam Storms offers practical steps to understanding and exercising spiritual gifts in a way that remains grounded in the word and centered in the gospel.

With examples drawn from his forty years of ministry as a pastor and teachers, Storms offers a guidebook that can help pastors, elders, and church members understand what changes are needed to see God move in supernatural power and to guard against excess and abuse of the spiritual gifts. If you long to see God's Spirit move in your church and life, and aren't sure why that isn't happening or where to begin, this book is for you.

Editorial Reviews

Sam Storms has done it again. This book combines sound theology withinspiring personal examples, together with practical ways to express thecompassion of Jesus to others by partnering with him in spiritual gifts.Sam successfully demystifies what it means to obey the apostle Paul'sinjunction to earnestly desire spiritual gifts (1 Cor. 12:31; 14:1). I highlyrecommend this book for anyone seeking to grow in this dimension ofthe grace of God, and especially pastors seeking to lead their flock intoa deeper experience as empowered evangelicals who want all that Jesusprovides for us. -- Mike Bickle, International House of Prayer of Kansas City
