We look today at the gifts of teaching, exhortation, giving, mercy, leading, and serving, to get a more biblical philosophy of the church, and to understand how the gifts of the Spirit are to operate in a local fellowship of Christians.
What astounds me as we look into Romans 12 is the universality of the gifts of the Spirit and the call to all of us to do our part in a godly way. This means that many believers today should probably be more involved in using these gifts than they already are. The pastor isn’t the only gifted person in the church! You too have gifts and a calling to use them!
