People always tend to search for the personality type and focus on the overall traits of their personality but did you ever wonder what is your spiritual gift? God has given each of us one or several spiritual gift and it belongs to us to discover it and put it to work for the ministry.
” There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyoneit is the same God at work.
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 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: 4-11
I urge you today to find what is your spiritual gift, it will be a great start if you are willing to help others and serve the ministry of the Lord. Pray God and ask Him to reveal your gift to you, analyze yourself and see what you are good at, what you love to do.
For instance, I found that I am a giver and a helper, which is absolutely true, by taking an online test. Here are my results:
Your two highest gifts :
GIVER: That special ability to contribute material resources to Gods work. The giver has a great desire to liberally share time, talent and treasures with self-sacrificing cheerfulness (Rom. 12:8; II Cor. 8:1-7, 9:12).
HELPER: That special ability to do service-oriented work for God in necessary tasks that may seem routine and mundane. The helper usually enjoys serving without public attention, doing such tasks as preparing a meeting room or working on a church building (I Cor. 12:28; Rom. 12:7, 16:1,2 NKJV: I Pet. 4:10,11).
