Hmm, Why haven't I ever Thought of That Before??

We are in our local Men's Bible study at 0645 in Chik-Fil-A, and we are talking about the Transfiguration of the Christ.  As I am looking at the Scriptural texts that deal with this wonderful event it occurs to me that in Jesus ALL the spiritual gifts are fully, perfectly, incorporated.

Which gifts?  In Romans 12 we get this list:

  • Prophecy 
  • Serving
  • Teaching
  • Exhortation 
  • Giving 
  • Leading
  • Mercy.

In I Corinthians, we see these other ones:

  • Healing
  • Miracles
  • Word of wisdom
  • Word of knowledge
  • Faith
  • Distinguishing of spirits
  • Tongues
  • Interpretation of tongues.

In us, we may have one or even two or three gifts.  We tend to feel superior to others without those particular gifts, but "God has allotted to each a measure of faith."  It is not ours, but G^d's gift to us.  He, and He alone, determines our gifting, and all of our gifts OUGHT to work together.

But The Christ exemplifies ALL of these.  What a Savior!!  Let's endeavor to be MORE like Him!!


  1. A wonderful truth..Thanks Brother!...And these gifts all run off the same motor...The Holy Spirit:)
