Love.  This is the first thing God started teaching me when I started to read Scripture and was so missing in my life.  Without love I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  While God has used me in other gifts, like a word of wisdom or the gift of giving, and occasionally that of prophecy for the edification exhortation and comfort of others, they are all useless drivel without love.

Before discernment, there is love. Before all knowledge, there is love. Before visions and dreams, there's love! Love the Lord with all of my heart, and my mind, and my strength, and love my neighbor as myself. When I walked in love the Lord revealed the blessing of obedience, teaching me about those gifts imparted by his Spirit. When I stray, he corrects me. When I do well the Lord lifts me up so that I can see a very long way, speaking to me of things to come. But always and without fail, love.

Rather,   abiding in union with Yahushua (Jesus),  as written throughout the New Testament of those who are truly born again ones, set apart ones set apart by the Father for Himself,

is there ANYTHING Jesus does in the New Testament that He does not DO TODAY ?    (practically not)  Jesus said He would never leave nor forsake the disciples, nor ever leave them (us) as orphans.....  Jesus - the same yesterday, today, and forever....  still does the Father's Will every day.  Likewise the Father's children Do also,  as the Father directs.

 

Jesus is Whole,  Complete,  not separated into parts or pieces at all.....

I know that many people worry about these things. They worry about speaking in tongues, they worry about not being "saved," they look at others whom they admire and then, looking at themselves, experience shame. So I would say this to those who fret and worry, being knocked this way and that by capricious winds: be like Willa. Love God, love your neighbor, forgive those who offend you, extend a hand to help those in need, and pray for the Lord's judgment to teach you how to do well. Give clothing to the naked and feed the hungry. Read the scriptures not because you're to wield them like a weapon, but for edification and learning! Be kind to the weak and give shelter to the stranger.

Worry about those things, not evidence that others deem fitting! As you give, it will surely be given to you.

There are nine gifts of the Holy Spirit. The spiritual tools of God are the gifts of the Spirit which He wants exercised in full by all of His Earth-sons.

Paul started his discourse of spiritual gifts by saying, "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I WOULD NOT HAVE YOU IGNORANT,"  (1 Cor. 12:1), and he ended his discourse by saying, "But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant" (1 Cor. 14:38).

 

1 Cor. 12: 1-11,

  1, Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
    2, Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. 
    3, Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:1 and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. 
    4, Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 
    5, And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 
    6, And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 
    7, But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 
    8, For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 
    9, To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 
    10, To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 
    11, But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 
    12, For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

What do you think your Gift of the Holy Spirit is? 

Baptism of the Holy Spirit is salvation. Matthew 3:11

Gift of the Spirit is the equipping of believers to do

their personal ministry according to that same calling.

1 Corinthians 12 (AV)
1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
28 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.
29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

My gift is that I have no gifts and therefore nothing to brag about.
