Charisma vs. Charismania

Charisma vs. Charismania! I Corinthians 12:1-11 Main Point: We must understand and use our spiritual gifts so that the Holy Spirit can accomplish His particular ministry through us so that the body of Christ will be built up and strengthened. 1. Definition: Spiritual Gifts are special abilities given to us by His indwelling Spirit so that we can minister to the needs of others. verse 7 ‘Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.’ *Spiritual gifts are not a measure of spirituality! 2. Distribution: The Holy Spirit distributes gifts to every believer, uniquely working through their personality and passion. (verses 4-6) *There are a diversity of gifts, each equally important and necessary for the good of the body. Romans 12:6-8; Ephesians 4:6-11 3. Discovery: Each of us are to discover and use our gifts so that the body will grow and mature, and Christ’s ministry will be accomplished through us. (vv. 12-21) I Peter 4:10-11 *If I don’t know or don’t use my gifts, the body will lack and Christ’s ministry will not be accomplished!
