For those who live in the Kingdom of Heaven, this question is of profound importance. What gifts of the Spirit are manifested in your life? (1 Cor. 12:7).
We know the gifts of the Spirit are listed in at least four places in the New Testament: Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 1 Corinthians 12:28, and Ephesians 4:11.
Admittedly, some of these gifts we readily embrace today. Gifts such as teaching, showing mercy or administration we affirm as necessary and present in the church. But those of healing, prophecy or the distinguishing between spirits? That's a completely different issue.
But where does the truth lie? Are spiritual gifts for the church today? And, if so, which ones? All of them? Or is it just a select few? And if a few, which ones make the cut? And why? By what merits?
These are just a few of the questions we are going to look at today. Are you intrigued? Then keep listening.
