This is an introduction message to spiritual gifts. We will talk about the difference between the spiritual gifts listed in Romans 12, the manifestations of the Spirit when using gifts as listed in 1st Corinthians, and the spiritual offices listed in Ephesians. We will discuss why God gives us such gifts and we will prepare ourselves to begin to look at each gift individually as we progress through this mini series.

The world will hate Jesus through His disciples. Jesus tells us this, not to discourage us, but to help us affirm that we are on the right path that God has set out for us.
