BIBLE PASSAGE: Romans 12:6-8 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER Manual 21 February 2021)

Rom 12:6  So we are to use our different gifts in accordance with the grace that God has given us. If our gift is to speak God’s message, we should do it according to the faith that we have; 
Rom 12:7  if it is to serve, we should serve; if it is to teach, we should teach; 
Rom 12:8  if it is to encourage others, we should do so. Whoever shares with others should do it generously; whoever has authority should work hard; whoever shows kindness to others should do it cheerfully. 

 

LESSON INTRODUCTION

It is definitely commendable for God’s children to desire to know the spiritual gifts given to them by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of service in the Church and glorify God in the world (2 Timothy 1:6). The existence of a gift is a call to exercise it. Therefore, Apostle Paul advised Timothy, “Neglect not the gift that is in you” (1 Timothy 4:14).

LESSON OUTLINES

  1. Identifying Your Spiritual Giftedness
  2. Effective Use Of Spiritual Gifts

 

1. IDENTIFYING YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTEDNESS

Identifying your spiritual giftedness can be accomplished in various ways:

A. Effective fervent prayers is very vital because the One who knows exactly how you are spiritually gifted is the gift-giver Himself-the Holy Spirit. You can ask Him to show you how you are gifted in order to better use your spiritual gifts for His glory (Luke 11:9, 13).

B. Confirmation from others also gives light to your spiritual giftedness. Other people who see you serving the Lord can often identify a spiritual gift in use that you might take for granted or not recognise (1 Tim. 4:14; 2 Tim. 1:5-6).

C. In addition, you can carry out a self-test. There are questions you can ask yourself as pointers to your spiritual gifts.
Questions like:

  • “What spiritual activity do l enjoy doing?”
  • “What ministry in my life is God blessing?”
  • “What is the Holy Spirit telling or prompting me to do?” (Rom. 12:5-8; 1 Cor. 7:20, 24).

 

Bible Reference

Luke 11:9-13

Luk 11:9  And so I say to you: Ask, and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. 
Luk 11:10  For those who ask will receive, and those who seek will find, and the door will be opened to anyone who knocks. 
Luk 11:11  Would any of you who are fathers give your son a snake when he asks for fish? 
Luk 11:12  Or would you give him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? 
Luk 11:13  As bad as you are, you know how to give good things to your children. How much more, then, will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

1 Timothy 4:14

(1Ti 4:14)  Do not neglect the spiritual gift that is in you, which was given to you when the prophets spoke and the elders laid their hands on you.

 

2 Timothy 1:5-6

(2Ti 1:5)  I remember the sincere faith you have, the kind of faith that your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice also had. I am sure that you have it also.
(2Ti 1:6)  For this reason, I remind you to keep alive the gift that God gave you when I laid my hands on you.

 

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Mention the spiritual gift(s) you have identified in your life since you surrendered your life to Christ

 

 

2. EFFECTIVE USE OF SPIRITUAL GIFTS


Teacher should emphasise the following key points:

A. Every Christian is given at least a gift at conversion (Ephesians 4:7).
B. As you manage well your initial gift and as your ministry expands, you may
ask God for other gifts under the direction and promptings of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:31, 14:39).
C. Every gifted person has a proper function in the body of Christ (the church).
D. No gift is superior to others but gifts differ in function (1 Corinthians 12:20-25).
E. No one believer has all the gifts (1 Corinthians 12:28-30), so we need one another.
F. Spiritual gifts are given:

  • To edify (build up) other believers (1 Corinthians 14:12; 26: Ephesians 4:12);
  • To promote growth, unity and love (Ephesians 4:16);
  • To assist in the care of one another (1 Corinthians 12:25; 1 Peter 4:10);
  • To glorify God, especially in the ministry of the Word (1 Peter 4:11).
