Top Image Spiritual Gifts 2This podcast briefly explores one of the difficulties we have in appreciating Spiritual Gifts, which is the lack of biblical definitions. The manifestations of the Holy Spirit are listed in 1 Corinthians 12, but nowhere described.

It is important for us to understand what the Spiritual Gifts are, because:

  • This affects how we appreciate them. Are they manifestations of the Holy Spirit through the ministry of a believer and therefore directly supernatural in origin and presentation? Or are they expressions of our human giftedness, leading, and experience enhanced perhaps by the gracious help of the Holy Spirit?
  • It affects how we respond to them. Do we act only when the Holy Spirit directly motivates us to do so, or do we operate in the gifts as a normal part of our Christian life and ministry?

In this presentation I use just the first of the 9 Gifts of the Spirit as examples of some approaches to the matter at hand.
