We are all born with four spiritual gifts: clairvoyance (inner vision), clairaudience (inner thoughts or ideas), prophecy (inner knowledge), and healing (inner feelings). The Bible calls these gifts faith, hope, love, and power. We cannot help but give them away to some extent or another.
Our culture has tried to eliminate faith, hope, and love, because they are seen as weaknesses. However, we need to remember that our spirit is made in God's image, so it makes sense that we would have these same four spiritual gifts.
It is important to realize that we were not given these gifts to use them as weapons against one another. Rather, they are tools that we can use to share with others the life-changing news that Jesus died for their sins and rose again from the dead.
How did Jesus use his gifts of faith, hope, love, and power? He showed everyone by his actions how to live a full life while having these same gifts.
He proved that love does not make mistakes, nor does it hold a grudge. Love gives without expecting anything back. It allows people to be happy even when they do you wrong.
Spiritual blessings accompany our second birth—our adoption into God's household. They are a gift from Christ, and they are made possible by the Holy Spirit. While your natural abilities enable you to be valuable in a secular situation, your spiritual gifts enable you to be useful in a spiritual setting. The Bible describes us as "spiritual" people who possess certain unique qualities that distinguish us as gifted with specific skills for serving God and others.
Your spiritual gifts were given to you by God. He has not left you without them; they are just underdeveloped because of sin. When we are born again, the Holy Spirit comes to live inside us. He causes each one of us to have a particular set of gifts that Jesus Himself has revealed to His church. These gifts are also called spiritual gifts because they relate to the spirit rather than the body.
There are seven such gifts, represented by the tongues of fire that descended on the apostles after they had prayed (Acts 2:43). We can develop other gifts too, but these are the only two that most Christians know about. The Bible does not specify when we are born again or what happens during this process, so we cannot say exactly how it happens. But once we are saved, our lives are watched over by the Spirit who then enables us to fulfill those gifts that He has put within us.
We need to remember that our spiritual gifts are not ours to use as we wish.
Spiritual gifts are abilities, talents, and capabilities bestowed upon us by life, God/Goddess, or Spirit. Spiritual gifts that are innately powerful. Such as the gift of healing, are called "spiritual" gifts. Other spiritual gifts may be less obvious, such as the gift of communication or leadership. These are called "functional" gifts because they enable us to carry out our duties as servants.
We all have one or more spiritual gifts. Some people are born with several natural gifts at the same time. For example, someone may be born with the gifts of diplomacy, teaching, and writing. Others are not born with any functional gifts but develop them through practice, training, and experience. For example, a musician must practice playing an instrument in order to improve his or her skill. The same is true for people who have certain skills related to spirituality. They must practice these skills in order to improve them.
Our spiritual gifts reflect what's important to us in life. If you're passionate about politics, for example, you might find that you're gifted with the function of advocacy. This doesn't mean that you can't also love other things such as music or art- only that you are naturally drawn to one area of life rather than another. It's normal to feel passionate about only one thing at a time.
The Manifestation Gifts: The manifestation gifts help to demonstrate God's might. These are supernatural or spiritual gifts. They are further classified into three categories: utterance, power, and revelation. Utterance: These presents convey a message. Power: These abilities have an effect. Revelation: This gift reveals something hidden.
For example, prophecy is when someone has the gift of utterance and they speak what will happen in the future. Teaching is when someone has the gift of utterance and they explain how things work in life or how to live a good life. Exhortation is when someone has the gift of utterance and they tell others about their faith in God or why they should be saved. Faith can be given through words alone because language cannot express everything that needs to be said. Words have power to move people to believe or not believe. Prophecy, teaching, and exhortation all have power because they can change people's lives for good or bad.
Miracles are gifts that have an effect but don't necessarily communicate a message. Physical healing is one type of miracle. So is deliverance from sin or Satan. Protection is when someone has the gift of power and they keep others safe from harm. Rebuke is when someone has the gift of power and they correct others when they are wrong or lead them in righteousness.
