The Gifts of the Spirit (Understanding The Holy Spirit Made Easy)
All the activities of the Holy Spirit—from interceding and advocating to guiding and empowering—point to his main role: to glorify Christ (John 16:14). Similarly, the goal of our own ministries should be to glorify Christ.
Q How do we do this?
By serving the body of Christ and helping it grow up (mature) and grow out (expand).
Q How do we do this most effectively?
Through the work of the Holy Spirit, especially his work of empowering believers—enabling and equipping each one of us with special abilities for serving.
Ministries are activities believers do that serve the church and allow it to grow and mature. Through the Holy Spirit, God gives gifts—in the sense of presents— to each believer. These gifts are called spiritual gifts because they are given by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:11). They are the tools we use to serve God and minister to others.
