Spiritual Gifts are God-given abilities which the Holy Spirit gives to each new follower of Christ Jesus. Some of the gifts are designed to help fellow Christians grow towards spiritual maturity. Other gifts are designed to bring the good news of salvation in word and deed to those living within a broken community.

Seven Steps for your consideration

1. Study the Biblical Passages concerning the Body of Christ - Spiritual Gifts. (Rom. 12, 1 Cor. 12-13, Eph. 4, 1 Peter 4:10-11)

2. Study the Biblical definitions of the gifts lists in the above passages.

3. Ask the Lord to show you how you have been burdened to love people.

4. Ask the Lord to lead you into a ministry that could benefit from your gifts.

5. Ask the Lord to surround you with mature Christians to help evaluate your gifts.

6. Ask the Lord to show you some of the spiritual fruit from your various ministries.

7. Ask the Lord to show you areas in which you have loved serving the body/broken community.

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 4:10-11
