What’s Your Spiritual Gift?

What’s Your Spiritual Gift?

As a follower of Jesus, understanding and exercising your God given spiritual Gifts should be an invigorating and exciting part of your spiritual journey, ignorance should not be accepted or tolerated.

Hear the apostle Paul:

1 Corinthians 12:1 “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.”

Ignorant: ἀγνοέω agnoéō, ag-no-eh’-o; from G1 (as a negative particle) and G3539; not to know (through lack of information or intelligence); by implication, to ignore (through disinclination):—(be) ignorant(-ly), not know, not understand, unknown.

Believe it or not, you were created for greatness!

Many people, including believers in The Lord Jesus Christ, go through life thinking very little of themselves, thinking that they are ordinary or average.

Jesus said these words: Matthew 5:13-14 “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”

1 Peter 2:9“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”

Every Follower of God is called to work along side God as a co-worker or as The Apostle states in 1Corinthians 3:9 “For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building”.

As “labourers together with God, God through The Holy Spirit has given to every worker tools with which to get His assigned work done, those tools are called spiritual gifts and no Christian should be ignorant about spiritual gifts.

The church of Jesus Christ is not like a human business that’s run by a hierarchy of officials. It is a spiritual body, a living organism established by Jesus Christ who is its Head. The members of His body are those who have accepted Him as the one who was sent from God the father, to die for the sins of humanity and have become new creatures through faith in Him as their Lord and Savior.
