SPIRITUAL GIFTS IMPACTS THE CHURCH

Knowing that each of us has gifts that are valuable and needed in the Body of Christ gives us purpose in God’s kingdom. As we demonstrate the love of God through gifts that He gives us, we can experience personal fulfillment and great joy: we can experience purpose in life. As we mature in our understanding of spiritual gifts and learn to be channels of God’s power as He works through them, we are equipped to bear abundant fruit in the kingdom of God.

If you are dissatisfied with your spiritual gift and decide not to use it, you’ll still have the same gift and the same role in the Body, but you will have refused to function. God will still accomplish His purposes on the earth and in the hearts of men (see Philippians 1:6), but you will forfeit the privilege and joy of carrying out your God-given assignments on the earth. God has deliberately given us different gifts, we need each other. As each one of us responds to needs according to our particular spiritual gifts, and He allows us to serve God in various roles of spiritual service, the Body of Christ can experience the fullness of His love.

Master Prophet believes that spiritual gifts are part of the very nature of God, given to you for Him to use to fulfill God purposes in our life and on earth. As we use our spiritual gifts, the Body of Christ will be edified, unified and matured, we will avoid deception by Satan and by wicked men, and we will grow in Christ.

“ To equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in very respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” (Ephesians 4:12-15)
