We all have spiritual gifts that will help us serve God and his people.Everyone is important in the Kingdom of God. But the big question is what is yours? What is mine?
They have spiritual tests online. I recently took one. Though my answers were not what I had expected. My highest scoring gift was Administration, then Mercy (for those who are suffering or needy), finally Discernment. Discernment mean to be able to tell the difference between good and evil, Satan and God, and truths and lies. Administration, to organize and direct people in the ministry.”How is that supposed to help me or God’s people?”, you might ask. I was wondering the same thing. But God makes no mistakes, so your gift has purpose and meaning in your life, as well as other’s lives. Even if you don’t understand your gift, it is useful in the plan God has created for your life. In the end everyone’s gift will be used to spread his name across the nations. We were called to go, all of us.
Your gift will play a huge part in telling people about Christ and God, and how he loves them. You may be helping the homeless on the streets of a big city, or just bringing your non-christian friend to your bible study. Everyones gift will help others come to Christ, advance in their faith, or come back to Christ. Christ created to us make a difference in this world and to use the gifts he specifically place in us. In the end, we get to be apart of giving people God. Isn’t that just amazing?
6 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. 7 If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. 8 If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Romans 12:6-8
