Apples of Gold - November 17 |

Hunt, Dave

As to tests to determine your spiritual gift, exercise caution. A Berean who seeks to know the Lord and to reflect His character does not need manmade methods to grow in Christlikeness. “Beloved…we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is” (1 John:3:2). A focus on spiritual gifts runs the risk of getting people’s eyes off Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, and onto self.

"And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues."

1 Corinthians:12:28
