Understanding Spiritual Gifts (Releasing The Gifts Of The Spirit)

Here Are 3 Steps To Experiencing The Gifts (Manifestations) Of The Spirit In Your Life

Step #1 — Be still and listen. Hear from God. Pay close attention to thoughts, feelings, pictures, impressions, ideas, and promptings in your heart and mind..
Step #2 — Notice which ones are possibly from God. Disregard yourself and share them with others and/or obey them. Refuse to ignore or to disobey the Spirit.
Step #3 — Watch amazing things happen as God demonstrates His power and presence in response to your obedience to His voice.

G-I-F-T-S of the Spirit 

G — Given through you to bless others.
I — Inspired, anointed by God.
F — For a specific need.
T — Transformational / life changing impact.
S — Spirit prompted.

Our job is to respond to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and to obey (and/or share) what He tells us — to “Quench not the Spirit.”  So don’t hold back.  When the Spirit prompts you, step out in faith (be willing to be a “fool for Christ”) and obey Him.  Then you and others will see the supernatural manifestation of God’s spiritual gifts.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
