Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:4
One of the great controversies of Christianity is the gifts of the Holy Spirit. There are some “Christians” who will claim you need to be able to speak in tongues as proof you are saved, while others will claim “if you just have enough faith you will be healed”. These claims are all misunderstandings of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
While I believe that speaking in tongues and healing are legitimate gifts of the Spirit, they are not essential to be saved and they are not gifts every Christian will receive. I have never spoken in tongues before and I am saved. There’s a lot of “Christians” who will fake having gifts to prove their salvation, You Don’t Need to Do This! In fact your committing blasphemy lying about possessing gifts from God which you don’t have
But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11
Paul explains everyone has different gifts based on what Gods wills you to have. To say all Christians have the same gift is not Biblical. Just as God has given all of us some sort of talent, God has also ordained us believers a specific gift of the Holy Spirit. What is your gift? You’ll have to figure that out with God, however I will tell you this you do have a gift!
One of the most abused areas in Christianity is false prophets and teachers pretending to have gifts they don’t possess. Don’t be like them, you are not impressing anyone. Anyone who is truly Born Again can tell you’re a fraud and eventually you’ll be ignored
Rely on the Holy Spirit in everything you do! Don’t just rely on your human talents, God can take your ministry further than you can imagine if you submit to his authority Amen!
