Spiritual Gifts - week 4 - Gift of Faith

*You've been taught to read your Bible incorrectly. Let's fix a few things...
 

Foundation

All spiritual gifts work (operate) by faith (not logic) through love.

 

1 Corinthians 12:27-28 (NIV)

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 28 And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. 

 

3 Categories of Spiritual Gifts:

Do Gifts - Faith

Faith:

  1. belief with the predominate idea of trust (or confidence) whether in God or in Christ, springing from faith in the same
  2. conviction of the truth of anything, belief
  3. confidence

 

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among younot to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. - Romans 12:3

 Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because "the righteous will live by faith."12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, "The person who does these things will live by them." - Galatians 3:11-12

And he called the people to him and said to them, "Hear and understand: 11 it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person...what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person." Matthew 15:10-11,18

 

Gift of Faith in the Bible:

  1. Healing, mountain moving faith - Matthew 17:14-20
  2. Healing faith - Luke 7:1-9
  3. Saving faith - Ephesians 2:8-9T

 

Myths about Faith:

  1. Faith doesn't require action (James 2:14-26)
  2. If you believe it, it will just happen (Hebrews 11:11)
  3. Faith works on people (Romans 10:14)
  4. Faith is the opposite of reason (Proverbs 3:5-6; James 1:5)
  5. Faith in any God is okay (Hebrews 11:6)

 

Wrap Up:

  • Spiritual gifts can be taught and learned
  • All gifts are within us
  • Faith level activates gifting level
  • Faith grows by hearing

So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. - Romans 10:17 NLT
