Kathie Lee Gifford: ‘This Is Redemption, This Is Healing’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Kathie Lee Gifford opened up about the gifts of the Spirit in her recent conversation with Sheila Walsh, host of LIFE TODAY.

“There’s so much misunderstanding about the gifts of the Spirit,” the Movieguide® Visionary Award Winner said. “There’s so much mystery surrounding it and there shouldn’t be, because once you understand – once you meet the people that have these gifts, and you see the way that they use them for the Kingdom of God, any bias you have about it is dispelled because you see what’s done in the name of the Lord Jesus. And you cannot say, ‘This is not God.’ This is redemption, this is healing….and nobody’s getting the credit for it but Almighty God.”

The Movieguide® Visionary Award Winner was on the program to discuss her book, “The Jesus I Know: Honest Conversations and Diverse Opinions about Who He Is.”

“I think for way too long, that we as Westerners have been way too terrified of the gifts of the Spirit when actually, when you read about them, when Paul talks about them, we’re all supposed to have gifts of the Spirit,” she continued. “They’re supposed to be different, used like different parts of the body for one good work, but we’re all supposed to use them. And people go, ‘Oh, Jesus doesn’t do that anymore, God doesn’t do that anymore.’ Really?” 

“Jesus said, ‘Greater things than this, you will do in my name when the Holy Spirit comes, but I have to go so you can do them.’ He didn’t put a time frame on that. We do!” Gifford explained. “We’re the ones that box God in, that relegate him to three dimensions, that stick him on a shelf and say, ‘Well, that’s what God does.’ Let’s open our eyes and our ears and our hearts and our souls to the great works the Holy Spirit is doing in the lives of brothers and sisters all over the world.”
