This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green examines 19 Gifts of the Spirit by Leslie B. Flynn.
The subject of spiritual gifts, so important in the life of the Early Church, has been frequently neglected throughout the following centuries. We’ll see the interest in Spiritual Gifts rise to prominence every so often in modern church thinking only to see it wane once again.
Repeatedly through the years, the church has failed to encourage its members to identify and utilize their gifts. Sadly, our Pastors are increasingly called to do too much while the people often do too little.
Church leadership and Layman alike must bear some responsibility for this lack within the body of Christ. Let’s be clear once and for all, God gives one or more spiritual gifts to every child of His. Spiritual Gifts are the gifts or special abilities given to Christians by the Holy Spirit. What are the gifts? What is their purpose? How can you discover yours and put it to use?
All these questions, plus a careful examination of gifts revealed in the Bible are included in this week’s in-depth study of 19 Gifts of the Spirit by Leslie B. Flynn. If you want to know what the Bible says about spiritual gifts, then come be a part as we investigate this essential element of the Christian life.
