4/15/12 – Gifts of the Spirit – part 1
The Apostle Paul wrote in the book of 1 Corinthians instructions regarding the proper use of spiritual gifts. Many in the church had confused and misused these wonderful blessings given by God’s Holy Spirit. His purpose in his writings was to clarify and end the improper use of the gifts and to bring a better understanding of their purpose and value to the church. There are 9 specific gifts he addresses in his writings found in chapter 12 of 1 Corinthians. In this message and the next couple to follow, we will consider one by one the great value and reason for the giving of these gifts to the body of Christ. Today, just as back in Paul’s day, there are many who misunderstand and misuse these gifts. It is vital that each of us understand and appreciate theses wonderful gifts in the way we should as followers of Jesus Christ.
