SPIRITUAL GIFTS SERIES I
Understanding our Spiritual Gifts
You are gifted by God to serve God.
Scripture reading: 1 Corinthians 12:1 - 11 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
it is also the end of our focus on our mission as followers of Christ.
The themes are - grace, giftedness, calling, christian maturity, hope.
If you have been touched by this message but have never invited Jesus Christ into your heart, today is the day of salvation dear friend. So we invite you to pray with us this prayer with all your heart. "Dear God, I believe you send your Son Jesus Christ to die for my sins. I believe He rose again and gives me forgiveness. I make him Lord of my life and I ask him to please enter into my heart. Thank you Jesus Christ, and thank you that now The Holy Spirit lives in me for eternity making me a new creation!
