Concerning Spiritual Gifts...

Pastor's Corner

1 Corinthians 12:1 ESV "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninformed."

(Read all of 1 Corinthians 12 here)

We live in a time where much of Christ’s church is uninformed about spiritual gifts. God’s heart revealed through scripture is that he wants us to have understanding about these things. We are also encouraged to earnestly desire spiritual gifts so that we will use them to build up Christ’s church. If you find yourself fearful or uncomfortable about spiritual gifts remember that perfect love casts out fear. The encouragement is to, “Pursue love and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts (1 Cor 14:1).” The gift giver is in the gift. It is through the Spiritual gifts that the Holy Spirit leads us and speaks to us. Earnestly desire spiritual gifts so that you will be more equipped to proclaim the love of Jesus to those around you!
