Last Sunday we talked about spiritual gifts at Courageous Church! We talked specifically how each person who is a follower of Christ has a gift to be used for the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:7). The point is we all need each other to make the greatest impact on the planet. As we spent time exploring 1 Corinthians 12 our desire was not just to have a great sermon but to really help people in exploring and finding their spiritual gifts.
We talked about 4 ways to help you figure out your spiritual gifts.
- Ask God
- Search His Word
- Ask Others in the Church
- Look for Opportunities to Experiment –
There is one final way that can be helpful and that is to take a spiritual gift assessment. This is not the end all but it can be very helpful in discerning your gift/gifts. Here are a few that can could be helpful.
Neither test is necessarily better than the other. I just thought it would be good to have something to compare against. I did not write these or can I take an credit for their complete accuracy. What I would encourage you to do is take the assessment and then sit down with a trusted believer and work through this. I would also encourage you to answer with complete honesty, not just what you want to be or wished you were. God made you on purpose and for a purpose. He doesn’t make mistakes.
I would love for you to comment and let me know what gifts seemed to be the highest. If you need any help in figuring out your gifts please don’t hesitate to comment below. Remember your gift was given to bless the body. Use it!
