TOPIC: GIFTS FOR SERVICE

TEXT: 1CORINTHIANS 12:1-11


Paul wrote the Corinthian Christians in order to guard against ignorance (vs. 1); can you think of some possible consequences of ignorance in the Church today? There are different kinds of gifts. These are categorized into two major arms: administration and operations.

The gifts are beneficial when deployed in service (vs. 7). When the gifts of the Holy Spirit are received by the Christian but not used become passive and non-beneficial, even to the custodian (see Matt 25:24-28).

Note the several gifts mentioned in vs. 8-10; each is given as the Holy Spirit wills. No man dictates to the Holy Spirit what he is to be given or how it should be given (Isa 40:13).


QUESTION

Have you received the gift of the Holy Spirit from God and are you using that gift in line with His will?


PRAYER

Thank You Lord for Your divine gift and its relevance in my life. Amen.
