1. Never thought about it
2. Not necessary to think about it
3. If I don't know my spiritual gifts, I don't have to use them.
Paul says in 1 Corinthians 12: 1, "Now about spiritual gifts, I do not want you to be ignorant." Thanks for cutting to the chase, Paul. In other words, Corinthian church, you are ignorant about them! Not only were they not informed about their individual gifts, but they had taken it on themselves to assign superiority to certain gifts.
Ok, so what about you? Do you know YOUR spiritual gifts? If you do know them, are you using them? Developing them? Or are you taking the easy way out, preferring not to know them so that you are free not to use them?
Friends, spiritual gifts give us the opportunity to glorify God, serve others, and build up the Body of Christ. And they remind us that we have a special place of service within the Kingdom.
There is no one else who can do what God has called you to do like you do it. That's why He called you.
Next week I will provide an assessment for you folks that are not sure what your gifts are. And then we will start looking at the gift descriptions.
In the mean time, PRAY that God would reveal how He has spiritually gifted you. ASK others in your life where they see fruit, and you will often find your gifts.
So, what comments or questions do you have that we can cover in weeks to come?
