“Earnestly pursue love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts,
especially the gift of prophecy” — Ezekiel 22:30
Our loving Heavenly Father has given ministry tools to His people for the purpose of helping others. They are the gifts of the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Pastor Jack says, “Learning to distinguish the source and purpose of the different gifts of the Godhead are key to effective ministry to others.”
The Bible tells us to “earnestly desire the most helpful gifts.” 1 Corinthians 12:31. These gifts are not for us to collect like fine pieces of art. Rather, we are to be a conduit through which the gifts operate not the possessor of the gift.
The distinctive gifts given by the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit truly represent the Trinity at work in creation and redemption.
