Description

Use Spiritual gifts. Ask God for Spiritual gifts, and use them as a sign for non-christians. Healing the sick, speaking prophetically into people's lives, offering wisdom etc. can all be used to bless others and display God's power and care. You could offer to lay hands on someone to pray for them, considering the surroundings carefully. Ask God for words of knowledge to speak into your friends lives to bless them.

Rationale

Paul highlights the importance of Spiritual gifts to the church in Corinth. He didn't want them to be ignorant about them and called them to pursue the greater gifts, whilst remembering they are to be used in love (1 Corinthians 12-14).

Spiritual gifts are given for the building up of the church and as a sign to unbelievers (1 Corinthians 12-14). Their use is for the blessing of others and are a way of expressing love (1 Corinthians 13). A key facet to Jesus ministry was that his teaching was backed up by performing miracles. Spiritual gifts given by the Holy Spirit can be used to display God's power, love and authority. Gifts are activated by prayer, operated by prayer and should be used in obedience to Jesus.

Today, where more people are pursuing 'spiritual things', displaying the tangible power of God is an important aspect of faith sharing.

Outcome

To bless others and glorify God.
