Spiritual Gifts Part 343:

A Checklist for Discernment.

The Doctrine of Spiritual Gifts

Point 4.
Developing the capacity you need to function effectively in your spiritual gift.

How do I use spiritual discernment?

All discernment is performed by the Holy Spirit, using the tools of Bible doctrine already tested and found in the soul, under the exercise of one’s priesthood.

HEB 5:14
But solid food [advanced doctrine] is for the [spiritually] mature, who because of practice [learning and obeying God’s word again and again]…

HEB 5:14
…have their senses trained [have vigorously exercised their souls and human spirits by applying God’s word under the guidance of the Holy Spirit] …

HEB 5:14
…to discern good and evil [resulting in discernment both of the genuine and the counterfeit].

We get discerned (tested) by God the Holy Spirit
first -
before we are qualified to
do any discerning.

PSA 19:12
Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults.

LUK 6:41-42
"Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

LUK 6:41-42
"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye?

LUK 6:41-42
You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye.


MAT 6:23
"But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!


2TI 2:15
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
