God invites us to "give our spiritual gifts away" through service.
The Bible has a lot to teach about spiritual gifts.
Here are a few verses to get you thinking about Spiritual Gifts.

Paul's basic description of a spiritual gift can be found in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11

  • EACH BELIEVER IS GIVEN AT LEAST ONE GIFT.
    (1 CORINTHIANS 12:7)
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT DETERMINES WHO RECEIVES WHICH GIFTS.
    (1 CORINTHIANS 12:11)
  • EACH GIFT IS EQUALLY VALUABLE. (1 CORINTHIANS 12:21-26)
  • WE ARE TO USE OUR GIFTS TO SERVE OTHERS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE BODY. (ROMANS 12:6-8; EPHESIANS 4:12)
  • WE ARE COMMANDED TO USE OUR GIFTS. (1 PETER 4:10)
  • EXERCISING OUR GIFTS WILL HELP US DEVELOP SPIRITUAL MATURITY. (EPHESIANS 4:13)

Pray for revelation

God will reveal our gifts through His Holy Spirit. Believers should pray and study what God says about gifts in His Word.  We should also remember God uses other believers to affirm our gift. Sometimes God may also use spiritual gift assessment tools to reveal His gifts.

A spiritual gift is an expression of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers which empowers them to serve the body of Christ, the church.

Begin to learn about spiritual gifts by reading these selected passages of scripture.

  • Romans 12:6-8;
  • 1 Corinthians 12:8-10, 28-30;
  • Ephesians 4:11;
  • 1 Peter 4:9-11 contain representative lists of gifts and roles God has given to the church. A definition of these gifts follows.

God has gifted you with an expression of His Holy Spirit to support His vision and mission of the church. It is a worldwide vision to reach all people with the gospel of Christ. As a servant leader, God desires that you know how He has gifted you. This will lead you to where He would have you serve as part of His vision and mission for the church.
