Daily Devotional- The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit: 1 Corinthians 12:4-11

Here in his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul takes a considerable amount of time to talk about the gifts of the Holy Spirit—an area of our faith that he knew could easily be misunderstood, and so he encourages us to not be uninformed.

One of the most important things we need to understand about these gifts is that they are an expression of God’s love to the world. They are tools that God has given us to help live out the Lord’s Prayer, “on earth as it is in heaven.”

God wants us to eagerly desire these gifts, but not from a place of self-service, rather for service to others.
