Spiritual Gifts Part 5: Spiritual Gifts: Before and After Jesus' life was different before he was filled with the Spirit and after. Is this just history or a role model for us to imitate?
Spiritual Gifts, Part 4: Spiritual Gifts, Energy and a Gift of Mercy When the Spirit of the Lord endows gifts of the Spirit, you will know you are walking in that gift when you receive energy as you do as the gift leads you to serve.

Spiritual Gifts Part 3: Gifts are Given to the Church Community Spiritual gifts are not given merely to bless a person alone. They are given to a person, so that God may bless a community. They are unselfish, and they are identified by the faithful telling the gifted that they have the gift.
