Spiritual Gift of Knowledge


Spiritual Gift of Knowledge in Scripture::

1 Corinthians 12:8 - "To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit" NIV

What is the Spiritual Gift of Knowledge?:

A person with the spiritual gift of knowledge will have a great amount of insight into God's truths. Having this spiritual gift means being into the ideas contained in the scriptures and understanding it well. It is a scholarly gift and differs from wisdom in that a person with the gift of wisdom will take that knowledge and apply it. Yet the person with the gift of knowledge can easily see how subtle messages in the Bible can be.

Is Knowledge My Spiritual Gift?:

Ask yourself the following questions. If you answer "yes" to many of them, then you may have the spiritual gift of knowledge:
  • Do I love to read and study the Word?
  • Do I see things in the Bible that others just don't see until I point it out?
  • Does understanding God's truths come easily to me?
  • Do people come to me for insight into the Bible because they have trouble finding answers to difficult questions or problems?
