What are the Motivational Gifts of the Spirit?
It is important to know our gifts and how those gifts function with others in the Body of Christ. In this seminar each person’s gift is given practical expression in our workshops. One of the most valuable things about this seminar is the way it helps us to recognize, honor and respect the gifts of others and how all of the gifts work together to accomplish God’s will through the Body of Christ. The Bible describes various gifts given to believer by the Holy Spirit. Broadly, there are three categories of spiritual gifts.
The first category can be called Ministry gifts. It includes those gifts that are often offices recognized within the local church. Ephesians 4:11-13: “… apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry...”
The second category is Manifestation gifts. These gifts are demonstrations of the Holy Spirit’s power and presence. They include: word of wisdom; word of knowledge; faith; gifts of healing; working of miracles; prophecy; discerning of spirits; tongues; and interpretation of tongues. (I Corinthians 12:7–11).
The third, Motivational gifts, are the gifts we will be discovering at the Motivational Gifts Seminar. These are exhibited according to how we see others and the circumstances around us. It is our God-given perspective that shapes how we respond to others and how we are motivated to meet the needs of those around us. These gifts include:
