Spiritual Gifts

Paul wants the Corinthians to understand that each person has a spiritual gift. Listed in 1 Corinthians 12:1-13 are different kinds of spiritual gifts and the same Spirit distributes them. Each person’s specific gifts are determined by the work of the same Holy Spirit for the purpose of common good and for God’s glory.

Jesus is the ONE who holds our faith together.  The body of Christ coalesce the diverse gifts of Christians. Through the Spirit, discover your gifts for the express purpose of kingdom building.

The photo below was taken at my church. You can see in this photo many gifts being exhibited from the choir in front of the church to those behind the scenes doing technical sound and video presentation to bring the worship service outside the walls of the physical church building.

The body of Christ coalesce the diverse gifts of Christians.

This day with You Lord, we come to You in the name of Jesus. There is great power in the name of Jesus and the Holy Spirit empowers each of us to use our skill or talents for Your glory. Help us to use our individual talents and set out to work each day to benefit the common good for Your glory. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
