Every follower of Jesus, born-again by His Spirit, has been given special abilities to bring God's truth and love to a sin-sick world. These gifts are given by God, to achieve His purposes through His amazing power. These are God's instruments for spiritual surgery, to bring wholeness to shattered people. But like any surgical instrument, they are tools and not toys. Tools, when correctly used, achieve a specific purpose; but toys are playthings, to amuse the pleasure seeker.
