Reasons For The Five Fold

When we seek our spiritual gifts, the place to start is with Christ and how we experience and know him

Jonah Jeremiah

One of the reasons for understanding the gifts or “graces” is to understand Christ.

The typical pattern is to dive into the gifts as a reflection of ourselves. We look inward instead of Christ-ward.

But we can deepen our relationship by thinking of Christ as all Five.

After all, as the giver of these five it is quite possible he resembles all. In looking to Christ and how he represents each gift we both deepen our relationship and experience of Christ, and gain an understanding of the gifts.

Let’s go through each one of the gifts as reflect how Christ expresses them and, more importantly, is that aspect a part of our relationship with him.
