Anointing & Spiritual Gifts covers how our spiritual gifts are the primary tools given to each of us by the Father to do His will. Each born-again believer must understand that the underlining purpose of the LORD giving each of us a spiritual gift-mix is not only an avenue for self-expression in our service to the Lord, but the primary avenue to reach the lost. Spiritual gifts are not to be confined within the perimeters of the local church. It is via our spiritual gifts that we are uniquely equipped to be effective is fulfilling our role in the Great Commission. The role of spiritual gifts is found in the Lord Jesus' request to the disciples in Matthew 9:37-38 (ESV): "Then he said to his disciples, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." It is through our anointing and gifting that we are best able to take our place among the laborers in the harvest.
