As Christians, we desire to serve our Lord and the Church (his body), we realize that many are naturally gifted with inbred talents, abilities, and aptitudes.
Although these natural capabilities are needed and accepted they are not in the same category with the Spiritual gifts we find listed in the Scripture of Corinthians 12.
This list covers nine (9) Spiritual gifts: Word of wisdom, Word of knowledge, Special Faith, Gifts of healing, Miracles, Prophecy, Distinguishing between spirits, Speaking in different kinds of tongues, and the Interpretation of tongues.
The church has also been gifted with Administration gifts which include:
First apostles, second prophets, third preacher/teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.
When you consider Romans 12, Ephesians 4 and 1 Corinthians 12 and combine these gifts, you come up with a summary of twenty three Spiritual Gifts listed here by Uniquelyou.com/
(Romans 12, Ephesians 4 and I Corinthians 12)
- Administration / Ruling
