Gifts From God

God has special gifts for everyone who asks and He has a gift or gifts for you.  Sometimes we can only handle one gift but I think most of us can handle more than one.  Let's see. I am going to put the gifts in the verses in bold print, so let's see how many we can find.

Psalm 84:11  "For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly."

Matthew 7:11  "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is heaven give good things to those who ask Him."

Luke 11:13  "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him."

Luke 12:32  "Do not fear, little flock , for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom."

John 3:16  "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

John 4:10  "Jesus answered and said unto her, 'If you knew the gift of God and who it is who says to you, give Me to drink' , you would have asked Him, and He would have given you Living water."

Acts 2:38  "Then Peter said to them, 'repent every one of you, be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins' and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 5:32  "And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him."

Romans 6:23  "The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Ephesians 2:8,9  "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."

James 1:5  "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given him."

1 Peter 4:10  "As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God."

Well, you see there are many, many gifts that God gives His children and I would say that all that we found tonight are very important for each one of us to possess, don't you think so.  There are quite a few others that we didn't mention which you would not want to possess them all as it would end up being a great burden, like teaching, prophecy, healing, discerning of spirits, etc.  And you would not be able to do them all justice.  But the ones we studied today, we will be blessed to have them all.
