Spiritual Gifts

1 Corinthians 12:1-11

 

What does the scripture reveal to us regarding the dispensation of Grace?

 

Gifts come by the Spirit, many times individuals get  Spiritual Gifts confused with Natural Gifts? Oratorical vs Teaching

The only person that qualifies to receive a or many Spiritual Gifts is one born of the Spirit. God does not pour out gifts to people who do not possess his Spirit.

The Gentiles were hearing those who called Jesus accursed, Paul tells him no man will ever call Him accursed, as He is the Lord by the Holy Ghost, as Jesus brought us all into the fold by the shedding of His blood.

 

1 Corinthians 12:4-8

Divers types of Spirit- one Spirit, but different operations, differences in administration, but the same Lord, there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God. This is a clear representation of the “God Head”

However, the manifestation of the Spirit is given to everyman to profit, not just that man, but to profit the Body. There is only one Body, gifts are not exclusive to one church, the gifts of the Spirit are to edify the Body of Christ. Therefore, you must be willing to release your gifts to benefit the Body.

 For to one is given wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discerning of Spirits, diverse tongues, interpretations of tongues, all divided and worked as the Spirit will- The Function of the Holy Spirit from this passage is to impart Spiritual Gifts as He will.

The church needs the gifts of the Spirit exquisitely adorned by the fruit of the Spirit to operate effectively-references

 Hospitality, Leadership, Discernment, Knowledge, Giving, Tongues, Evangelism, Exhortation, Helps, Healing, Pastor, Teaching, Mercy, Service, Apostle.

Romans, 12, 1 Corin. 12, Eph. 4

 

1 Timothy 4:1-14- A Testimony to Training up A Child

 Paul is writing to Timothy, neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery

 You must discover your gift; Timothy’s gift was given by God and revealed through prophecy. The Lord knowing Timothy’s assignment placed within him the ability to get the job done. He sought God for direction

 

We must -Discover, Dedicate, Develop our Spiritual Gifts.

A gift without development will not be effective. It is your responsibility, once your gift is discovered to cultivate your gifts- you must discover what he has placed in you. Once you discover the gift you must dedicate it completely to God. Your gift must be cultivated and matured both Spiritually and Naturally.
