“What does God want to do through me? What is His particular assignment for me? Where do I fit in the body of Christ? What exactly ARE spiritual gifts and why are they so important?” Exploring and discovering the answers to these questions is what the Discover class is all about!
WHAT’S SO SPIRITUAL ABOUT YOUR GIFTS?
That the World May be Astounded!
Look back at those first century believers…how could they possibly launch and multiply the church?
They really didn’t have many resources – no seminaries, no beautiful church facilities or sound systems/multimedia tools, no such thing as a Bible in every member’s hand. There were no celebrities to endorse their cause, and very little freedom to promote their belief in Jesus Christ.
They were plain men and women for the most part, insignificant and unknown, fighting against fierce opposition and hatred. But the Bible says that they “turned the world upside down!” (Acts 17:6) Wave after wave of persecution broke over them, yet they emerged victorious.
The message of the early church is that the bare simplicity of the Christian faith is what counts. These early Christians’ story was simply God’s people proclaiming the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit – “talking the talk” and then living lives that conformed to Christ – they “walked the walk.”
The Bible tells us of a gift from God that unleashes the power and wisdom of His kingdom, giving everything we need for life and godliness – the Holy Spirit! Ordinary, insignificant people, who have faith in the risen Christ and by His grace, can receive the gift of the Holy Spirit! Discover how!
