Serve at Trinity

Gifted to Serve

Every spiritual gift is given freely by the Holy Spirit, “who apportions to each one individually as he wills” (1 Cor. 12:11). In other words, the Holy Spirit sovereignly dispenses the gift, and the gift is not predicated on the believer’s maturity or performance. The Corinthian believers, whom Paul described as unspiritual “infants in Christ” (1 Cor. 3:1), nevertheless, seem to have experienced many manifestations of the gifts (1 Cor. 12, 14), and their disorderly use of the gifts proved divisive.

The fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) is a mark of every Christian, but the gifts of the Spirit are not. Theologian Alister McGrath helpfully illustrates the difference between the two: “Think of two trees. One is an apple tree. If it really is an apple tree, it ought to bear apples. You know it by its fruit (Matt. 12:33). Similarly, Christians ought to show the fruit of the Spirit in their lives, although the extent will vary from one person to another. Now think of [a fir tree] … inside a home [on Christmas Day] with presents around its base. Those presents have nothing to do with the tree! They didn’t grow there. They were placed there by someone. They are someone’s gifts, not the natural fruit of the tree.”

The gifts of the Spirit reflect an intentional diversity within the body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 teaches:
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

The diversity and unity within the Trinity, the “Spirit,” “Lord” Jesus Christ, and “God” the Father, serve as the basis for the diversity and unity of spiritual gifts within the church. This diversity promotes the interdependence of the body of Christ, rather than independence or interchangeability of its members (1 Cor. 12:12-30).
