spiritual gifts inventory

A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.      1 Corinthians 12:7, 11 (NLT)

 

GOD is a gift-giver. That’s pretty sweet because who doesn’t like gifts? He’s given us the gift of life and the gift of salvation for those who believe Jesus is Lord. He’s given us the gift of family, friendship, health, food, clothing, shelter, etc., but wait… there’s more! If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, the gifts just keep coming, because He’s also given every single believer at least one spiritual gift to be used to serve and build up His Church.

How are spiritual gifts different than – or similar to – talents, skills, and abilities?

Here’s the short answer:

  • A talent you are born with
  • A skill you learn with experience and education
  • A spiritual gift is given by the Holy Spirit when we become a believer
Choose the youth or adult online assessment link below to assist you in discovering your spiritual gift/s. The danger of spiritual gift assessments is they tend to reveal where we’ve been strong and weak and what we like to do, not necessarily what we ought to do in the future.  You’ll be tempted to trust the inventory results (only do what you’re comfortable with) instead of trusting God to be strong in your weakness. This inventory is not an end in itself, but a beginning. A beginning to seek God more and a relationship with Him as you discern how God is gifting you to serve His kingdom.
