Spiritual Gifts & The Church

In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul continues to call for unity in the body of Christ. The church is a magnet for spiritual people, but discerning the Holy Spirit is critical. Those of us in Christ find our gifts are not self-aggrandizing; rather we are called to interdependence, contributing our gifts out of service for the good of the whole. Interdependence culminates in love. When we feel safe inside the church we will naturally combine our spiritual gifts and work tirelessly to face the challenges of our mission for Christ.
