“The Gifts of the Spirit -3”

Key Verse

 “But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will” (1 Corinthians 12: 11).

Text — 1 Corinthians 12:10-11


Today’s study concludes the teaching on spiritual gifts. Spiritual gifts are God-given abilities distributed to individual Christians by the Holy Spirit that help the Church to execute her mission on earth in fulfilment of God’s agenda. These gifts include the gift of working of miracles (supernatural power to do the incredible);the gift of prophecy (ability to teach and declare God’s will); the gift of discerning of spirits (ability to determine true message of God from that of the deceiver and Satan); the gift of speaking in divers kinds of tongues (ability to speak in unlearned and unknown languages in prayers and worship); and the gift of interpretation of tongues (ability to understand and interpret unknown languages to others). Men like Jahaziel (2 Chronicles 20:14-17), Apostles Peter (Acts 5:1-10) and Paul (1 Corinthians 14:18,19) manifested the gifts.

To receive these gifts, you must be baptized in the Holy Ghost. Also, you must ensure you possess the fruit of the Spirit. The gifts of the Spirit are to be used to glorify God and not self. Pray for your parents on this Global Day of Parents.  


Spiritual gifts are God-given abilities.


The gifts empower God’s children to fulfill His agenda.

Prayer for today

Father, give me the gifts to fulfill your purpose, in Jesus’ name.
