As you study these Bible verses, you see that God gives the gifts in Romans 12, Christ gives the gifts in Ephesians 4 and the Holy Spirit gives the gifts in 1 Corinthians 12.
God wants to strengthen His church in love. 1 Corinthians 14 says:
“Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.” 1 Corinthians 14:1
As Christians we are part of God’s family and need to use our gifts to help one another. Ephesians 4 explains why. It reads:
“For the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ – from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.” Ephesians 4:12-16
Pray the prayer at the top of this page and God will help you use His gifts to strengthen His church.
