Extraordinary – Week 3: The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Speaker: Pedro Erasmus

Worship: During your devotional time or at life group listen to or play this worship song “This is the Kingdom by Elevation Worship” Reflect on the words, as we seek first the kingdom, He will add what we need to our daily lives.

Spiritual Gift Assessment: Take time during the week to discover what your gifts are – here is the link to the Assessment.

Check-In: As you reflect on last week’s study, share what impacted you and if you’ve experienced any changes in your daily life and in your interaction with others as you become more aware of the Holy Spirit.

Bible Readings: Acts 17:28; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Zechariah 4:6; Acts 20:35; Genesis 1:26-27; Psalm 139:13-16; Romans 6:23; Acts 1:4-5; 1 Corinthians 12:1 & 7; Matthew 7:11; James 1:17; Romans 12:6; 1 Corinthians 14:1; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 4:10; Romans 12:1-2; Ecclesiastes 11:1

Preparation and Discussion for Group Time:

  1. God also bestowed on us the “Gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 1:4-5) which empowers us to live out our Christian life. Through the Holy Spirit, we also receive the “Spiritual Gifts” (1 Cor 12:1 and 7), a supernatural ability given to us as His children so we can fulfill His purpose on earth. Discuss the following points relating to these gifts:
    2.1 Who is eligible to receive these gifts? (1 Cor 12:7)
    2.2 Does everyone receive the same gift? (1 Cor 12:1)
  2. In Rom 12:6-8 we see how we can identify the spiritual gifts in our own lives. Share with the group what you think your spiritual gifts are even if you didn’t do the assessment.
  3. Have a look at 1 Cor 12:7-12, and discuss, from your interaction with each other thus far, how these gifts might be visible in each other’s lives.
  4. Now that you know you’ve been given certain spiritual gifts (even if you’re not certain what they are) how does it affect how you view your relationship with God and how you see yourself?

Check out and Prayer: Read out Rom 12:1-2 and then go around in a circle, praying for each other that the Lord will reveal each one’s spiritual gifts, renew our minds and that we can use these gifts to do His will to further His kingdom.

Love God:
Memory verse: Rom 12:1-2 (NIV) “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, this is your true and proper worship”.
