This will be a year of being refreshed by the gifts of the Spirit even more than in past years. Kid’s Version: We will share our gifts like never before. This year is time to be refreshed in the enabling of the gifts of the Spirit to minister to others and to be refreshed by the gifts ministered to us. When believers gather, it will be a gift exchange. 1Cor.12:4-7, NASB “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”

As the people of God assemble today, may they be strengthened, encouraged, equipped and comforted by the gifts of Christ (Eph.4:11-12) and the gifts of the Holy Spirit (1Cor.14:3) for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
