Striving for spiritual gifts
God motivates us: “Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.” 1 Corinthians 14:1.
What are spiritual gifts?
The Bible speaks of nine spiritual gifts: wisdom, knowledge, faith, the gifts of healing, the working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, speaking in tongues, and the interpretation of tongues.
These gifts come from the Holy Spirit; they serve Christians as edification and encouragement.
A new spirit in us
Man consists of spirit, soul and body. When we give our life over to Jesus, we receive a new spirit.
This spirit is linked with God. Through the new spirit, we understand the truth of the Bible and the messages of Jesus.
Through this new spirit, we can receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
How do I get access to the Bible?
Jesus says, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63.
He who first has given his life over to Jesus has access to the spiritual world of the living God.
Through the spirit he can understand the Bible. A nonbeliever reads the Bible, however he does not totally understand it.
For him, it is illogical, stupidity.
It is precisely this that I, Robert Bühler, have experienced myself – see My becoming a Christian.
Every person who believes in Jesus can have a deep loving relationship and communion with God and Jesus.
Because Jesus replaces the old spirit that wanted to live without God with a new spirit.
A new person – a new and changed life
The person’s life is changed completely.
This is visible in the fruits of the Holy Spirit, which everyone has access to as soon as they are born again.
God has a mission, a task for each Christian. A person cannot fulfil this task without God’s help.
Thanks to these tools – the supernatural gifts of the Spirit – the person can do everything that God asks them to do.
The concept in the book “Spirit, Soul and Body” is an important requirement for getting to know this topic in depth.
