Empowered for Purpose
Calling and Empowering the Weak
Concerning Spiritual Gifts
The POWERFUL presence of our personal God.
Every CHRISTIAN is in EMPOWERED for SERVICE.
Every GIFT comes from the SPIRIT
As long as we’re comfortable and confident in our ability, we’ll never experience what it feels like to work in His ability.
Every GIFT is given for the COMMON GOOD.
To desire the “greater” gifts is simply a different way of stating what the overall argument makes clear, namely, that all things should be done for the edification of the whole. In every way, individual members of the body should seek the welfare of others. To seek what is more useful is an exhortation to the church to recognize the value and the place of every gifted believer.
