But covet earnestly the best gifts; and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
1 Corinthians 12:31
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
1 Corinthians 12:1-11
The Bible teaches us that there are certain gifts that only the Holy Spirit give (1 Corinthians 12:7-10). The gifts of the Holy Spirit as we read in the above main text are basically nine and they are further divided into three categories namely:
1. Revelation Gift
Category comprising: (A) The Word of Wisdom.
(B) The Word of Knowledge, and
(C) The Discerning of Spirit.
2. Inspirational Gift
(B) Different kinds of tongues, and
(C) The Interpretation of tongues.
3. Power Gift.
(A) The Gift of Faith.
(B) The Gift of Healing, and
(C) The Gifts of working of miracles.
These gifts are available to any genuine believer who has enough faith to ask for it, believing that he will get it. For it is written in Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled.”
Similarly Matthew 7:7 enjoins us to ask and further assures us that it shall be given to us while Matthew 7:11 show the readiness of our Heavenly Father to release His Gifts to us.
God is still looking for whom to entrust His Gift to; can you seriously promise Him that you will use the gift(s) (if given to you) for His Kingdom work alone and not commercialized same but would return all the glory to Him? Are you also prepared to live holy throughout your life? Then talk it to God, the Holy Spirit will search your heart and give as He will (1 Corinthians 12:11).
