Born A Gifted ChildSeptember 8, 2016 Save Article
Now when you got saved, you got your spiritual gift. Just as you got your natural proclivities when you were born naturally, you get your supernatural proclivities when you are supernaturally born. Your spiritual gift is a salvation gift. When you were born-again, you were born a gifted child and “for by one Spirit have we all been baptized into one body.” (1 Corinthians 12:13)
Everybody has a ministry. Now, you may not yet have discovered it yet. A little baby that is born in the natural world has hands. Have you ever watched a baby discover his hands? When a baby is born, he doesn’t know that he has hands. But later on that baby can become an artist, a pianist, a violinist, or a surgeon as he learns how to use those hands. But that baby didn’t get his hands later on. The parents didn’t take the baby back to the hospital and say, “Now put the hands on.” The hands came at birth. The child has to discover his hands. The child has to develop his hands and then deploy his hands and put his hands to work.
When the Holy Spirit came into you, He did not come in empty-handed. When you were born, you were born a gifted child.
