The Gift that Keeps on Giving

The Gift that Keeps Giving

By: Angeline Lawrence

It's that time of year and everyone is busy making their holiday plans. However, let's pause to remember the true meaning of this holiday season. The salvation of Christ is a gift to mankind from God. Our access to that gift begins with the Holy Spirit. Once we have received the gift, we are endowed with supernatural abilities, such as healing, prophecy, and faith to name a few.

On the other hand, I Corinthians 13:2 states, “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”(NIV)

If we operate in our gifts without manifesting the love of God, we are just noise makers (I Corinthians 13:1). Seeking to bear the fruit of the Spirit will magnify our gifts and enable us to be acceptable in the sight of God. Jesus taught his disciples in John 15:5, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (KJV)

The gifts of the spirit are diverse but the true blessing is in the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23 states, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”(KJV)

As we reflect on this year let us consider the fruit of the Spirit that is produced through our lives as Christians. I Corinthians 13:3 states, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
