A Church for the Gifted

Bill Drewett continues our series on spiritual gifts by asking a couple of the most basic questions. What are spiritual gifts, and who receives them?

So is this how it works in the church too? It’s easy to assume that the same principle applies, that there are some people who have a gift for ‘spiritual’ things, and most others don’t. But is this right? What does the Bible say about the subject?
