Gifts of the Holy Spirit


Individual lessons & Bible Study Guide

Ephesians 1:13-14; John 16:7-15; Acts 5:1-4; Ephesians 4:30; Hebrews 10:26-29; Mark 3:22-30; Romans 8:15-17 & 26-27. Prior to looking at the different spiritual gifts God gives to those who trust in Jesus, we first look at what the Scriptures reveal about the Holy Spirit Himself and clear up some common misconceptions.

John 20:18-22; Acts 1:3-5&8; Acts 2:1-8 & 14-21; Acts 2:37-41; Acts 4:29-31; Acts 13:8-12; Acts 13:52; Matthew 28:18-20 and Ephesians 5:1-20. The Scriptures reveal that we are sealed with the Holy Spirit the moment that we put our faith in Jesus Christ, but what does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit? Are we perhaps settling for less in our walk with the Lord?

John 14:16-17; 1 Corinthians 3:1-3; 1 Peter 4:10; Ephesians 4:11-13; Acts 21:8-14; Deuteronomy18:22; Acts 8:29-31 and Acts 18:24-26. Spiritual gifts are meant for all Christ-followers. They come from God as expressions of His grace — in other words, we don’t earn or deserve them. We look at five gifts mentioned in Ephesians 4: apostleship; prophecy; evangelism; shepherding; and teaching.

Romans 12:1-8, Acts 6:1-7, Acts 9:26-28, Acts 9:36-43, Acts 15:4-31. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us and all of them need to work together in the Body of Christ. In this lesson, we look at five of the gifts as mentioned by Paul in Romans 12: the gifts of service or helps, encouragement, giving, leadership and mercy.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Corinthians 12:15-21; 1 Kings 3:16-28; Acts 27:1-44; Acts 16:16-18. Paul wanted believers to understand that all the gifts — as varied and different as they are — come from the same source. The same Spirit gives each one and the same Lord is served through them. This week we study the gifts of wisdom, knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, miraculous powers, discernment, tongues and the interpretation of tongues.

1 Corinthians 14:1-40. We look at some of the issues facing the church in Corinth. Paul wasn’t faulting the Corinthians for wanting all that the Holy Spirit gives. In fact, he encouraged them to desire spiritual gifts. However, he wanted them to focus on a few very important principles as they did.

1 Corinthians 12:8-10 & 27-31; Genesis 39:3-5; Genesis 39:22-23; Genesis 41:43; Acts 6; 1 Peter 4:7-11; Acts 16 and Romans 16:3. In this lesson we look at the final gifts of administration and hospitality as well as how to discern and develop the gifts the Holy Spirit has given to us in community with other believers.
