Title: Spiritual Gifts


1
Spiritual Gifts
  • Why Dont We Understand Spiritual Gifts?

2
Why Are Christians Unsure About Spiritual Gifts?
  • Evangelical teachers today differ widely on the
    subject of spiritual gifts
  • People look for categories of spiritual gifts in
    which they neatly fit
  • The Bible looks at spiritual gifts from different
    perspectives, not just one

3
What Are Spiritual Gifts?
  • Spiritual gifts are SPIRITUAL gifts
  • 1 Corinthians 121-3 Now about spiritual gifts,
    brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant. You
    know that when you were pagans, somehow or other
    you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.
    Therefore I tell you 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.
  • Not everything spiritual is of the Holy Spirit

4
What Are Spiritual Gifts?
  • The work of the Holy Spirit is not normally seen
    with the human eye
  • The empowerment of the Spirit is not natural
    empowerment, human ability or experience
  • Spiritual gifts are evidence that Jesus Christ is
    all powerful
  • 1 Corinthians 24,5 My message and my preaching
    were not with wise and persuasive words, but with
    a demonstration of the Spirit's power, so that
    your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on
    God's power.

5
What Are Spiritual Gifts?
  • Spiritual gifts are spiritual GIFTS
  • Spiritual gifts are graces which are not deserved
    but given by God- so dont boast
  • When God uses our strengths we might think it was
    me and God that got this done!
  • Spiritual gifts are given by God sovereignly
  • Spiritual gifts are given for the edification of
    the church
  • 1 Corinthians 1412 Since you are eager to have
    spiritual gifts, try to excel in gifts that build
    up the church.

6
What Are Spiritual Gifts?
  • Spiritual gifts are a matter of faith
  • Paul links the gifts that are given with the
    faith that accompanies those gifts
  • The greatest problem regarding understanding
    spiritual gifts is lack of faith

7
How Can We Exercise Faith?
  • We need to have faith God has supernaturally
    empowered us
  • We need to have faith God will direct us to the
    ministries in which our gifting is most suited
  • God will demonstrate His power AS we serve and
    not necessarily BEFORE we serve

8
No Sacrifice
  • To You I give my life
  • Not just the parts I want to
  • To You I sacrifice
  • These dreams that I hold on to

10
  • To You I give the gifts
  • Your love has given to me
  • How can I hoard the treasures
  • That You designed for free

11
  • Chorus
  • Your thoughts are higher than mine
  • Your Words are deeper than mine
  • Your love is stronger than mine
  • This is no sacrifice, heres my life

  • To You I give my present
  • To You I give my past
