What are your God-given gifts? Not sure? Take the spiritual gifts survey and then return to this page.
Scripture tells us that God gives us these gifts according to His grace, not as a reward for spiritual maturity. We can’t earn our gift, that’s why they’re called “gifts!” We don’t know what to do with these gifts, so we often put them away in an empty closet and forget about them.
Maybe you have a gift of singing but can’t seem to take that first step to ensemble rehearsal. Perhaps you have a gift of creativity but are too afraid to express your ideas.
Remember the parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14-30)? Jesus tells us to use what we’ve been given. So open your closet, dust off those gifts, and put them into use!
Review your Spiritual Gifts
Now that you’ve read about some gifts and maybe taken the spiritual gifts survey, consider these questions:
- What brings me joy and fulfillment?
- Have I consciously asked God to reveal my spiritual gifts to me?
- Can I set aside some special time this week to read these gift descriptions and the Scriptural references?
Review the Scripture references of those gifts listed you think might be yours. Ask someone close to you to suggest the spiritual gifts they think you have. Then together re-review your selections. You can come back to this page anytime – it’s at rejoicegeneva.org/spiritual-gifts.
