What are Spiritual Gifts?

Spiritual gifts are supernatural abilities that the God gives us to help others. (1 Corinthians 12:4-7) Some spiritual gifts are obviously supernatural and are often called the "charismatic" gifts. Others are human abilities and strengths like leadership or serving that the Holy Spirit improves and hones to bring God more glory. While some spiritual gifts may come accross as "more impressive" or "more spiritual" all are necessary (1 Corinthians 12:22) and all are gifts that cannot be earned. The exciting thing is that God has given every Christian a spiritual gift to use!
