Serving Gifts: Introduction

The second ten gifts compiled from the lists fall into the broad category that Peter describes as “the gift of helping others” (1 Pet 4:11): Of those who serve with one of the service gifts, Peter says, “Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ” (1 Pet 4:11).

Paul can speak generally of serving or helping others (Rom 12:7; 1 Cor 12:28). Or he might detail how this is be done:

  • Serving and helps
  • Mercy
  • Encouragement
  • Contributing
  • Healings
  • Leadership and administration
  • Faith
  • Miracles

The next several posts on this blog will address these.
