UNDERSTANDING THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT was my second written publication. It is one of two small booklets that has had a powerful impact on my teaching ministry and the life and ministry of the church, the body of Christ.
This booklet has given rise to my workbook, Equipped to Serve, A Study for Tweens About the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. With my books, Rediscovering Our Gifts (workbook), Understanding the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, and Equipped to Serve, A Study for Tweens About the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, you have the resources to teach an entire congregation on the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including children and youth.
This booklet explores the following topics:
- what is a gift of the Holy Spirit
- why are the gifts of the Holy Spirit important
- what the Old and New Testaments Teach about the Gifts of the Spirit
- what the gifts are and are not
- What happens when we don’t use our gifts
