Gifts of the Holy Spirit

At the same time, God also testified by signs and wonders, various miracles, and distributions of gifts from the Holy Spirit according to His will. Hebrews 2:4 HCSB

Over the years I have observed people using their spiritual gifts in ways that bring honor and glory to God. Some have been excellent teachers, while others have had the gift of encouragement and have brought encouragement to me when I needed it. My spiritual gifts are teaching and administration. Is it no wonder that I am a Minister of Education and Administration. I am striving to use the gifts the Lord has given me through the Holy Spirit to advance the kingdom of God.

This verse testifies to the fact that God reveals Himself through signs, wonders, miracles, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit in addition to His Son, Jesus Christ, the greatest revelation of God. When someone uses his or her spiritual gift, it reveals God and brings honor and glory to Him. All of these avenues verify the truth of the Gospel message.

Challenge: When others observe how God is working through us, it demonstrates God’s presence among us and His power. How are you using the spiritual gifts God has given you?
