Spiritual Gifts are mentioned in 1 Cor 12:6-8, Romans 12:6-8 and Ephesians 4:11.
These gifts are given for the common good in the church, to serve others and let God be glorified! As like how our body have many parts, likewise Body of Christ which is church have lot of people with various gifts to serve others. As like how hand helps mouth and mouth helps tongue, etc. Both Fruit of the Spirit and Gifts of the Spirit are important. God is encouraging us to desire Spiritual gifts and also to grow in the fruit of the Spirit. Our life needs to be filled with love, joy, peace and all the fruits at the same time our life needs to be empowered by the gifts to serve others.
Our Lord Jesus is the example where He was filled by the Spirit and did good works, at the same time He demonstrated love, peace, joy and all the fruits. In the message I talked about why we need Spiritual Gifts and what it means to desire for Spiritual gifts. Holy Spirit gives the gifts to the body of Christ according to His will. Gifts will not make a person Spiritual as we are called to known by our fruits. But, surely Spiritual Gifts will edify others and bring glory to our Father! Continue to remain in God’s love, grow in the fruit of the Spirit and desire Spiritual gifts!
