Foundations Pt 11: The Manifestations of God’s Love
The spiritual “gifts” that Paul talks about in 1 Corinthians 12, 14 and Romans 12 are not things that a distant and far away God send down to his people. They are the very evidence of His presence, character and heart. That is why Paul calls them manifestations, because the manifest the tangible presence of God. Not only does God manifest his power, he also manifests his heart to love and serve and support.
