Spiritual Gifts: Exhortation
Transcript of Spiritual Gifts: Exhortation
The unique and God-given ability to come alongside someone and speak the Word in a way that comforts, encourages, and confronts to move them forward in their sanctification.
Are Exhortation and Teaching the Same?
Does Exhortation have more discernment?
What about Exhortation and fear of man?
Thinking the power of change is in them and not in the Spirit and the Word
Quick to judge motives
Get easily frustrated with a lack of growth
Proudly think they are farther along than others
Do I Have the Gift of Exhortation?
In situations of struggle do you tend to focus on the spiritual issues in play as the highest priority and your first thought over practical needs?
Do people at times think of you as too direct because there is a willingness to talk about and ask hard questions of people?
Do you tend to be dissatisfied with study unless you see how it should work out practically in your life and the lives of others?
Do the commands for community being involved with one another in spiritual discipleship resonate loudly with you?
Not using their gift
Do you tend to see confrontation as a necessary part of spiritual growth?
Do you value deep spiritual relationships where there is good open communication and foster and pursue those relationships?
“12 Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. 13 But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.”
“Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.”
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
1 Thessalonians 5:14
1 Corinthians 14:3
1 Timothy 4:13
"Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching.”
No, although because they are often driven to deal with the spiritual issues it may seem that way at times.
Those with the gift of exhortation struggle with the fear of man just as much as anyone else, it may just manifest differently.
They can communicate in an unloving way
Do you love to study and talk about counseling and discipleship techniques and resources and put them into play?
