Understanding The Seven Motivational Gifts in Romans 12

  1. 1. Understanding the SevenMotivational Gifts in Romans 12 Jim Wright www.CrossroadJunction.com
  2. 2. Romans 12:3-8"For through the grace given to me I say to everyoneamong you not to think more highly of himself than heought to think; but to think so as to have soundjudgment, as God has allotted to each a measure offaith.For just as we have many members in one body and allthe members do not have the same function, so we,who are many, are one body in Christ, and individuallymembers one of another."© 2013 James C. Wright (www.CrossroadJunction.com) 2
  3. 3. Romans 12:3-8"Since we have gifts that differ according to the gracegiven to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly:• if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith;• if service [helping], in his serving;• or he who teaches, in his teaching;• or he who exhorts, in his exhortation;• he who gives, with liberality;• he who leads [rules or administers], with diligence;• he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness." (NASB)© 2013 James C. Wright (www.CrossroadJunction.com) 3
  4. 4. Our Individual Perspective We each have one of these gifts as our primary motivation and ministry (although we can have secondary motivational gifts). We must use them – according to the grace weve been given, in faith, and with sound judgment. We should be secure in our gift – its strengths and weaknesses – without envy or trying to be like someone else with a differing gift. Gifts match our core motivation (what makes you light up!), which also match our calling (area of ministry).© 2013 James C. Wright (www.CrossroadJunction.com) 4
  5. 5. The Body of Christs Perspective Each of these seven gifts are necessary for a healthy church (the Body of Christ) and are to be vital parts of every church. They must be ubiquitous and allowed full expression in a church – in its meetings, its structure, its ministries, its leadership and in its day-to-day life as a community. No one gift (or gifted person!) is to dominate over the others. The absence of even one gift means a crippled church.© Fulcrum Ministries (http://www.FulcrumMinistries.org) 5

  13. 13. ApplicationIf those with prophetic gifts are muzzled … your church, your meetings and your life will lack transparency and visionIf the teachers are not encouraged to explain … your church, your meetings and your life will lack understanding and wisdomIf the helpers are not honored as they serve … your church, your meetings and your life will lack blessing and things will never reach completion © 2011 James C. Wright (www.CrossroadJunction.com) 13
  14. 14. ApplicationIf the exhorters are not free to reach out and relate … your church, your meetings and your life will lack harmony and social cohesionIf the givers are prevented from presenting opportunities … your church, your meetings and your life will lack resources, vibrancy and vitalityIf those gifted at ruling are not allowed to administer … your church, your meetings and your life will lack decency, structure and order © 2013 James C. Wright (www.CrossroadJunction.com) 14
  15. 15. ApplicationAnd if those who bring mercy are not esteemed … your church, your meetings and your life will lack intimacy and grace and will never lay hold of the full acceptance of the Father -- or each other – which is available through Christ.
