SPIRITUAL GIFTS SERMON OUTLINES

These are the three prominent passages that deal directly with spiritual gifts. We will look at others, but we will focus are attention on these passages. The first and foremost question that we need to answer is, "what is a spiritual gift?" It wouldn't do us any good to proceed with the topic unless we knew what a spiritual gift is. Let's look at what...

This morning we're continuing our series of messages on God's Gifts of Grace. God has given every one of His children a gift of grace! You ask, "Are you sure?" Oh .. I'm sure all right! 1 Peter 4.10, "As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another ..." 1 Corinthians 12.11, "But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing...

Question: How many ministers does CWBC have? 1? 4? Everyone? Nowhere does the Bible teach the pastor is the only minister in the church. The Bible teaches all Christians are ministers. READ 1 Peter 4:10-11. "Each one" received a gift. God is a giver. 1. GOD GAVE YOU GIFTS. THREE GIFTS GOD GIVES YOU THE MOMENT YOU TRUST JESUS...

INTRODUCTION: If each of the seven gifts were represented in a family and someone dropped the dessert on the floor, here is what each one might say: PROPHET: "That's what happens when you're not careful!" Motivation: To correct the problem. SERVER: "Oh, let me help you clean it up." Motivation: To fulfill a need. TEACHER: "The reason that it...

Now, tonight we're talking about spiritual gifts so let's turn once again to I Corinthians 12, the 12th chapter of I Corinthians. We're going to be going from I Corinthians to Romans 12 again and again as we look at the matter of spiritual gifts. There are different lists of spiritual gifts in the Word of God and we're going to be looking at all the gifts...

Many commentators suggest that the main body of the Sermon is now over, and that verse 13 ushers in the application and conclusion. Certainly Jesus emphasizes more strongly than before the necessity of choice. It is hardly necessary to comment that almost any discussion about choice makes some people very uncomfortable. It is extremely...

Those two verses give us a rather concise and yet complete statement of the subject of spiritual gifts. The word, gift, in verse 10 is the word from which we get the word, charismatic, and it is a reference to the spiritual grace gifts which God gives through the Holy Spirit to every born again believer. If you have experienced the grace of God...

This morning we are looking at being good managers of our spiritual gift. Our primary text is 1 Peter 4:10-11. This is sort of the "overarching passage" when it comes to spiritual gifts. Let's look and see what the Apostle Peter has to say about this topic: TEXT: 1 Peter 4:10-11. When Peter says "as each has received a gift", what is he talking...

We all want a message from God. We want to know what God is saying to us now. We want to know what plans God has for our future. We want to know our purpose in life. We want to know the direction that God is leading us. We want to hear from God for our lives. We see people running from church to church to church all in...

by Jonathan McLeod

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninformed. Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirits; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common...

What if I gave you the car of your dreams? It's a gift to you. You get to drive it around, enjoy its comfort, its speed, its beauty. BUT you have to drive me around wherever I want to go. What would you think about that? No wait, you gave it to me, and I want to go where I want to go, so people can see me drive it...

I remember when I was a small child and I heard about this comforter. My home Church was King James only. So I didn't hear about the Holy Spirit, I heard about the Holy Ghost. That wasn't comforting to me at all. I remember laying in bed at night and praying that God would protect me from vampires, werewolves...

ifts usually express love. Now I know that sometimes that is corrupted, as when people give gifts to another with an ulterior motive, for what they can receive back. The motives may be mixed; thinking of one's self rather than the other person. But what we are thinking about today is the subject of real giving, a gift of love, a gift of deep appreciation, of affection, of genuine love to...

Now in our family, gifts are an important thing, especially birthday gifts. Actually, before Debbie and I got married, she told me how important gifts were to her. And she said, ''I need a gift on every special occasion - on birthdays, Christmas, it goes without saying, anniversary, ground hog day. And she said, ''If I ever tell you it's okay to not get me a gift, I'm lying!'' It's just gifts...

Sometimes gifts can be dangerous things. I'll never forget the Christmas my two older cousins, Ronnie and Chuck, both got BB guns. From daybreak, when they unwrapped their weapons, until around noon when they were finally apprehended, these two went on a crime spree that terrorized that neighborhood. As I recall, their targets included at least three broken house windows, a windshield...

A young couple had been married a few years. One day the husband came home from work to find his wife waiting at the door with a great big hug and kiss with a huge smile on her face. A little taken back the husband asked what was going on. She said she had a big surprise for him. The wife looked at her husband still grinning from ear to ear just giddy with excitement...

hope you have your Bibles open already to I Corinthians chapter number 12. We'll look tonight at various verses, we'll not go as far as Iwanted to, but we'll be around I Corinthians for awhile. As we begin our worship service, let's bow for prayer together.Father, we thank you for songs, we thank you for witness, we thank you for prayer, we thank you for worship. And now we wait expectantly for your proclaimed word...

As we enter into the year 1991, there are ominous challenges to our faith currently before us and also on the horizon. Uncertainty and even fear fill the air as we contemplate our world and what is and will be taking place. How we view and confront the issues before us is critical. As believers, we must deal with the reality as it is, but in a victorious...

According to the written account of the battle in the book, The Longest Day, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, Commander in Chief of Army Group B of...

I was reading about a teenager named Hudson Taylor. One day, he had the afternoon off from school. And the whole house to himself. He decided to read something to pass the time. He found a pamphlet on his father’s desk that said, ‘‘It is Finished.’’ Wondering what it was about, he started reading it. And he realized that Christ had finished the work that needed to be done for our salvation when he died on the cross...
