Whenever God gives a person a supernatural ability to do some particular thing or to fulfill some particular role, it can be said that specific person has been gifted by God to do that specific thing. The person of the Godhead who administers these gifts is the Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit of God that enables us to use these gifts, that’s why these gifts are often called the “spiritual gifts.”
In this episode, Kenny unpacks the passages of Scripture that explain how we are to use these gifts as well as the passages that list the many different types of spiritual gifts that are available to believers.
