Finding Your Spiritual Gift

If you say “I have no gift.” you are calling God a liar. He says we all have a gift.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. … All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines. (1 Corinthians 12:7, 11, NIV)

And this is how you find your gifts. You try stuff out. I was a flop in the nursery; hurt my back.

Did a stint on the board but was bored to tears with long discussions that seemed to go nowhere. Worked on the nominating team and women’s ministry but really just wanted to teach them something.

I taught Bible studies and adult Sunday school for ages and found my evangelism gift when I started to speak for Stonecroft, RSVP Ministries. God has opened the doors for me to teach and evangelize on a larger forum now and I am so grateful.

So no excuses; you do have a gift. Ask God to reveal it to you and when he does, walk in it …for the common good.

Prayer- Here I am God, willing and ready to step into my giftedness. Show me how to proceed. Thanks, God. Amen.
