Do you know what a Spiritual Gift is? Do you know what yours are? Do they stay the same or do they change in your lifetime? Most importantly, are you working within your Spiritual Gift? If not, why not?
I’ve been thinking a lot about Spiritual Gifts lately. It all started with a post I read over at The High Calling by Michelle DeRusha called Enough: A Year of Not Shopping. The post wasn’t about Spiritual Gifts, but one of the comments was. Cassandra Frear made a very wise suggestion and an observation. Then Cassandra said, “Here’s what I’ve noticed. Our enemy does not want us to use our spiritual gifts properly.” I’ve been mulling and praying over this ever since.
So, I’m going to write a little about Spiritual Gifts over the next few posts. If you don’t already know what a Spiritual Gift is, you can certainly find the answer in one of the books down below. You can also read Spiritual Gifts by Fred G. Zaspel online.
There are online tests to take, from simple to complicated. The first one I ever took years ago was on the United Methodist Church website: UMC.org Spiritual Gifts test There are others, just Google Spiritual Gifts Assessment and you’ll find several but some require logins etc. The UMC website does not. It’s my feeling it’s a good basic assessment and returned the same results as the more complicated ones I took.
So, what do you know? Are you working in your gifted area? I’d love to know what you think.
