The nine gifts of the Holy Spirit listed in 1 Corinthians 12 are demonstrations of
God’s matchless grace at work in the world, as well as evidence of His powerful
presence in the midst of His church. They are manifestations of the sovereignty
and provision of God that people can actually see, hear, and experience with their
senses. And they testify to the crucial truth that Jesus Christ is the Lord and
Savior of the world.
