The Extraordinary Gifts | Rom. 12:3-8, 1 Cor. 12:4-11
Aaron Gray | September 3, 2017
- What has your experience been with respect to the “extraordinary” gifts? Good? Bad? Helpful or hurtful?
- Do you have (or think you may have) any of these gifts? If so, how is Jesus asking you to put them to use?
- How are the “extraordinary” gifts (a) not an end in-and-of themselves, and (b) how do they serve to point us to the gospel of Jesus?
- If you haven’t already done so, take the spiritual gifts test on the SCBC website at scbc.do/spiritualgifts and then share the results with your group.
- Read 1 Corinthians 12:31, and pray that God would help you to “earnestly desire” all the spiritual gifts that he has for you, including the “extraordinary” ones.
- Pray that God would use all our gifts—both “ordinary” and “extraordinary”—for his glory, for the good of our church, and to reach the lost.
