1 Corinthians 12:4-6 NIV 2011
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kids of working, but in al of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
The Holy Spirit, the Lord Jesus Christ and God the Father are all One. Matthew 28:19, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” The gift of grace comes through the Holy Spirit that dwells within the hearts of believers. Paul powered by the Lord served Him. Romans 1:1, “Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus.” God works continually in believers. Ephesians 4:6, “one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” Triune God graciously gives gifts unifying His powerful people.
In the mid 1980’s protestant churches studied Spiritual gifts. Unfortunately members were pigeon holed by the results and expected to serve in that way. Yes, I do believe God gifts us each with Spiritual gifts and service/hospitality was my gift. Yes, I do love to entertain however I’m gifted as a teacher and leader. My God given gifts makes me His unique creation. As a part of the body of Christ I’m united with others and each have Spiritual gifts. God’s gracious gifts unify us to serve Him daily.
Where are we using God’s Spiritual gift?
God’s gifted servants,
