Spiritual Gifts - Miracles, Tongues, and Healing

There is much to be said here that will challenge our thinking when it comes to the work of the Holy Spirit and his “grace gifts” to believers in Jesus. In particular when talking to the issues of “Miracles, Tongues, and Healing”, as we are this week, we need to remember that we’re talking about the spiritual gifts of the same, and not these areas in a more general sense. That said, it would be important for us to back up and understand the context of both Luke’s account of the first century church, recorded in the book of Acts, as well as the context of Paul’s writing of 1 Corinthians- the two New Testament books where most of the material surrounding these topics is addressed.
