The Spirit has gifted people in the church so that the church can carry on the work Jesus commanded - which is, to make much of Him.
That's what the Bible says in I Corinthians 12.1-3. That's the "main idea" behind Spiritual Gifts. This week we'll take a look at several of the specific gifts that God, The Holy Spirit has given to Christ's Church for the purpose of making much of Jesus, for the building up of the church until we all "get" Jesus (Ephesians 4), and so we can get a glimpse of what awaits us when we won't need gifts anymore because we'll we looking dead into (but alive!) the face of Jesus (I Corinthains 13).
