“Spiritual Gifts”

Exodus 31 The Holy Spirit is the person of the Trinity who gifts men for the purpose of ministry. He gifted Bezalel with four gifts: in skill, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship. However, the Spirit did not leave Bezalel to do this work alone. He also gifted Oholiab from the tribe of Dan to work under Bezalel. Paul expands this idea in Romans 12 where he explains that each member of the church community has a gift specifically apportioned for the work of the ministry in the church. To the Ephesian church, he told them that we are “equipped for the work of the ministry of God that is to build up the body of Christ.”[Eph 4:12]

It is often heard people say one of two things: (1) I don’t know what my spiritual gift is OR (2) I don’t have a spiritual gift. To say either is to deny the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. This nothing more than a false idea; instead stop and consider yourself blessed to be given your gift so you can serve the ministry.  

Where are you serving using your spiritual gift?
