Nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit

By | February 21, 2014

I want to talk a little bit about the nine gifts of the spirit; what they are, how they operate.  The gifts of the spirit, in the Bible, say 1 Corinthians 12:4-10. This is not the same as the motivational gifts are spoken about in Romans 12:4-8.   Every believer has one or more spiritual gifts. 

“Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; or he that exhorteth on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness”. 

Motivational gifts reveal God’s personality operating through the believer. They show the heart and what motivates service. We will discuss later on Spiritual Gifts Today the site.

The gifts of the holy spirit, not for a few special folks but for any Born Again believer.  You may desire to be used but did not know how.  You may have felt you had a prophetic word or word of knowledge, but did not know what to do with it.   Get good teaching on the topic.  If your ministry does not teach on the gifts, there are many ministries, that offer classes open to the public, on the Gifts of the Spirit.

Ask God to use you in the nine gifts of the holy spirit, open your heart and your spirit to be used by him.  He wants to use you to be a blessing not only to the body of Christ but those who do not know the Lord.  The gifts are an excellent way to minister hope and blessing, to those who do not yet know God.  Step out in faith, and he will do the rest.
