The Principles of our Gift







Everyone is important in the body of Christ and the talent you have is designed in you for a purpose.

1 Cor 12:1-26

Vs 1

It is time to sit with the word for yourself and learn from the spirit of God directly, asides from the sermon you hear at church or in programs.

Vs 2-3

Beware of the doctrines of religion and tradition. Get rid of wrong ideologies about spiritual gifts. Everyone has access and the opportunity and possibility to manifest spiritual gifts.

Vs 4-6

Different gifts, same Spirit/Lord/God for the fulfillment of a united purpose. It is the Holy Spirit that gifts each person. And God’s gift in us manifests in different persons for a united purpose to the glory of God. The gift given is to complement one another, it is not a competition serving the same Lord. Be comfortable in what God has called you to do.

Vs 7

You are a recipient of a spiritual gift in purpose. Everyone has a gift so that we can help each other. Place the right value on what you have especially when you think that it is not in the limelight. There is value in you, no matter what your gift is. Acknowledge the good in you.

Vs 14-24

What you have is more than enough and very important.

Judges 3:12-15

It doesn’t matter what your experiences/limitations are, you have value in God’s eyes and He has called you for purpose.

1 Kings 17:8-13

That which appears little is more than enough to serve others with, trust God for the rest and serve first. Don’t allocate power to publicity. Our gift is used to serve each other.

1 Peter 4:10-11

Use your gift to serve others, as you do this, you are giving glory to the audience of one, God through Jesus Christ. The ultimate purpose of your gift is to give glory to God. Be diligent with what God has called you to, don’t minimise it or compare it with another.

1 Cor. 12:5-10; 1 Pet 4:11; Rom 12:4-8

There is a variety of gifts, discover it, embrace, value it and serve with it.

1 Cor 12:11

The distributor is qualified. The Holy Spirit is the distributor, trust Him because He knows you most. Focus on what God has given you, acknowledge the good in you, and serve with it.
