I don't usually like to pick one topic and expound on it. I much prefer reading an entire book of the Bible and going through it verse by verse. You learn so much more that way. However, there are several topics within the Bible that deserve our attention. One of these is the subject of Spiritual Gifts. So for the next little while we will be looking closely at the gifts God gives us. We will examine how they are supposed to work within the body of Christ and since so many new Christians (and sometimes older ones) question whether they have any gifts at all, I think it is important to have a proper understanding of not only what gifts God has given us, but how we are to use them. And we will also examine the touchy subject of whether or not some gifts no longer exist. While some say they all currently exist, others say they don't. So I hope you will join me on this journey as we look at what the Bible has to say about Spiritual Gifts.
Let us start by listing all the Spiritual Gifts available to us as listed in Romans, 1 Corinthians, and Ephesians and 2 Peter.
If I have left any out, please let me know! But this is a very good list to start with, don't you think? And aren't you amazed when you look at this list, over all that God gives us to carry out His mission here on earth? I don't know about you but it absolutely boggles my mind! We are so blessed.
Now, you may be wondering which gift you have and if you have more than one. Be assured that every Christian has at least one or more of the gifts above. What gifts do you think you have? I'd love to know and perhaps throughout this study you will learn if you have more than you thought!
