7
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS

    spiritual gifts, known as Charismata, grace

8
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • What is the meaning of the
  • Body of Christ?

9
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • Ephesians 122 - 23 says
  • And God has put all things under the authority
    of Christ, and he gave him this authority for the
    benefit of the church. And the church is his
    body it is filled by Christ, who fills
    everything everywhere with his presence.

10
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • Colossians 112 - 18 says
  • always thanking the Father, who has enabled
    you to share the inheritance that belongs to
    Gods holy people, who live in the light.
  • For he has rescued us from the one who rules in
    the kingdom of darkness, and he has brought us
    into the Kingdom of his dear Son.

11
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • God has purchased our freedom with his blood and
    has forgiven all our sins.
  • Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
    He existed before God made anything at all and
    is supreme over all creation.

12
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • Christ is the one through whom God created
    everything in heaven and earth. He made the
    things we can see and the things we cant see --
    kings, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities.
    Everything has been created through him and for
    him.

13
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • He existed before everything else began, and he
    holds all creation together.
  • Christ is the head of the church, which is his
    body. He is the first of all who will rise from
    the dead, so he is first in everything.

14
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • The Church
  • Operates on the power of the Holy Spirit
  • Christ is the Head
  • members of the Church are the OTHER body parts!

15
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • 2) According to 1 Corinthians 1212 - 27, what
    kind of system did God choose for organizing
    the body of Christ?

16
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • 1 Corinthians 1212 - 27 says
  • The human body has many parts, but the many
    parts make up only one body. So it is with the
    body of Christ.

17
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are
    slaves, and some are free. But we have all been
    baptized into Christs body by one Spirit, and we
    have all received the same Spirit.
  • Yes, the body has many different parts, not just
    one part.

18
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • If the foot says, I am not a part of the body
    because I am not a hand, that does not make it
    any less a part of the body.
  • And if the ear says, I am not part of the body
    because I am only an ear and not any eye, would
    that make it any less a part of the body?

19
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • Suppose the whole body were an eye -- the how
    would you hear? Or if your whole body were just
    one big ear, how could you smell anything?
  • But God made our bodies with many parts, and he
    has put each part just where he wants it.

20
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • What a strange thing a body would be if it had
    only one part!
  • Yes, there are many parts, but only one body.
  • The eye can never say to the hand, I dont need
    you. The head cant say to the feet, I dont
    need you.

21
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • In fact, some of the parts that seem weakest and
    least important are really the most necessary.
  • And the parts we regard as less honorable are
    those we clothe with the greatest care. So we
    carefully protest from the eyes of other those
    parts that should not be seen,

22
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • while other parts do not require this special
    care. So God has put the body together in such a
    way that extra honor and care are given to those
    parts that have less dignity.
  • This makes for harmony among the members, so that
    all the members care for each other equally.

23
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • If one part suffers, all the part suffer with
    it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are
    glad.
  • Now all of your together are Christs body, and
    each one of you is a separate and necessary part
    of it.

24
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • NOT Democracy
  • NOT Benevolent Dictatorship
  • BUT An organism system with a head who is
    Christ

26
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS

    distributes these gifts. He alone decides which
    gift each person should have.

    visions.

    right desires, and I will put a new spirit in

    my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do
    whatever I command.

    Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters
    will prophecy, your young men will see visions,
    and your old men will dream dreams.

32
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • In those days I will pour out my Spirit upon
    al my servants, men and women alike, and they
    will prophecy.

    clouds of smoke.

    stature of Christ.

53
BIBLICAL TEACHING ABOUT SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • Then we will not longer be like children,
    forever changing our minds about what we believe

    Jesus Christ. All glory and power belong to him

THE FOUNDER SAID...
  • You must know you have a gift before you can use
    it. Every man is a genius in some direction.
    There is some specialty in which he excels beyond
    those about him Put yourself into circumstances
    in which you are likely to discover for yourself,
    and in which others can help you to find out,
    what gifts you do possess.

62
THE FOUNDER SAID...
  • I am afraid thousands live and die with
    abilities, which, had they been discovered, might
    have been the means of saving multitudes.
