Spiritual Gifts- Gifts of Healings

Get Audio Version Here: bit.ly/aud1853

1 Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV)
To another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit

When Derek first saw a sick person miraculously healed, he was still an atheist. He had reluctantly attended a gospel campaign his classmate invited him to because he wanted to date her. That night, he was sitting next to another classmate who was crippled. In that meeting, this classmate was miraculously healed and started walking for the first time in many years. That was the day Derek believed in the Lord Jesus. All his doubts about the existence of God vanished. He now wanted to know the God that healed his crippled classmate.

The gift of healing is a spiritual gift that brings supernatural healing to the sick. It usually operates when the believer having this gift lays his/her hand on the sick or simply prays for them in faith, etc.

The power of God can be likened to electricity. Spiritual gifts can be likened to electrical appliances like light bulbs, fans, air conditioners, sound systems, etc. If a house is properly wired with sufficient electricity flowing in its wires, but there is no single appliance in the house, it would be difficult to convince someone who has never known about electricity that electricity is real and in that house. But when there are appliances like light bulbs and fans, it would be easy to convince such a person.

When there are spiritual gifts in manifestation, it is easier to get people to believe in God and in His power. This was one reason Apostle Paul was such an effective fisher of men. The display of the power of God was his priority in preaching the gospel (see 1 Cor 2:4).

Go into today remembering that one of the easiest ways the power of God is displayed is through spiritual gifts.

Prayer:
Ask the Lord to activate your spiritual gifts.
Ask Him to cause that wherever His gospel is preached in your nation, signs and wonders, miracles, and gifts of the spirit will accompany it (Heb 2:4).
—Pst. Abraham Damilola Arigi
