Endowments given by the Spirit. All Christians should show the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5: 22–3), but the gifts bestowed by the Spirit are adapted to each individual, and are listed by Paul in Rom. 12: 6–8 and in 1 Cor. 12: 8–10, 28–30. They comprise gifts of speech, both coherent utterance and also the unintelligible speaking in tongues (though some present might have the complementary gift of interpretation); gifts of service and administration; and gifts of healing. A further gift mentioned by Paul is apostleship, which builds up the Church by leadership and pastoral care. In later epistles (Eph. 4: 11 and 1 Pet. 4: 10–11) the gift of speaking in tongues ( glossolalia) is omitted, possibly because experience taught the Church that words understood by all were preferable to sounds intelligible only to God (1 Cor. 14: 1–5).
