Spiritual Gift Definition – what makes a preacher?

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.’ 1 Corinthians 12v27-31

Quick recap : every believer possesses a number of spiritual gifts of which one is unique and primary to them – the other spiritual gifts are useful but also carry a formational benefit.  Although the following descriptor acts as a guide, please  consider getting the app or doing the test in the book/ebook to elicit which one of the gift is primary to you. Today -we consider those who have a primary gift as Preacher.

People with the gift of preaching speak about God in an inspired and authoritative way. Always keen to address individuals, groups or congregations, they will convince and convict people through their arguments.  They are energised as they preach and people understand and respond.
