Spiritual Gifts: Blueprints for the Body

Released December 3, 2020 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


When the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of a person, He comes bearing gifts. The book of 1st Corinthians has much to say about these gifts and how important it is that Christians understand what is taught about them.   How many different gifts are there? Who chooses which gifts we get to flow in? Can I obtain a gift I do not currently seem to have? Is everyone expected to manifest all of the gifts?   In this episode, Jeff unpacks what the Bible says about the main purpose God has given us the gifts of the Spirit. The listener will also learn how and why God intentionally grants certain gifts and withholds other gifts from us as individuals. So much encouragement is found in this episode for those who do not yet know their primary spiritual gifting, or who wrongly believe they have no gifts or significance in the Kingdom. At the end of this episode, Jeff calls each believer to move wholeheartedly toward seeking higher levels of the gifts of the Spirit so they can use them for the Father’s intended purposes. Topics: spiritual unity, spiritual diversity, Body of Christ, cooperation instead of competition, tongues, praying in the Spirit, prophecy, building up ourselves, building up others, spiritual maturity. Reference: 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
