Found Your Gifts Yet?

Found Your Gifts Yet?

“Developing the gifts God gave you is an act of worship” – Darrell Evans

Have you found your spiritual gifts yet?

God calls us to be individuals; creative, expressive and active.  He has never made anyone else quite like me and He’s never made anyone else like you.  He is a creator, not a duplicator when it comes to us.

Each one of us has been created and crafted to do specific good works; works for the church, works for each other, and works to build up the body of Christ.

There are different kinds of gifts,

… but the same Spirit.

There are different kinds of service,

…  but the same Lord.

There are different kinds of working,

… but the same God works all of them in all men.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. – 1 Cor 12:4-7

You also have been called and have been given gifts.  Perhaps you are struggling to find them.  My advice would be that you not wait for a sign or to be asked by someone else to serve.  Sometimes this happens; but God usually works in more subtle and mundane ways, at least in my experience.   Take the initiative.  If you are a guitarist, drummer, bass player, pianist or any other type of musician, surprise your Pastor, tell him that you want to serve.  If you write poetry, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.  If you like to teach, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.  If you enjoy working with children, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.    If you are an artist, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.  If you are a singer, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.  If you are good with computers, video and audio equipment, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.  If you know how to arrange flowers, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.  If you know how to sew, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.  If you enjoy praying, tell your Pastor that you want to serve.  These are just a few of the gifts that our Lord has so abundantly blessed us with.
