Do you know your spiritual gifts?

Spiritual-GiftsSpiritual Gifts…do you know what your spiritual gift is?

Have you ever taken one of those spiritual gifts tests where you answer a whole bunch of questions, and then you tally up the results, and voila, you find out which spiritual gift you have?

Tests like that could be helpful as a starting place, or at least that’s how we have looked at them at Faith Church.

As we continue working through Paul’s long teaching on worship (chapters 11-14), which is based in his concern that the church at Corinth’s worship gatherings were out of control, he wants them to learn that unity is vital to worship. One area they were showing their disunity is spiritual gifts.

We talk a lot about identifying our gifts, but maybe the better question is “What are they for?”

Would you read 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 before worship tomorrow?  Prepare to hear about the purpose of the gifts.  Ask yourself if you are using your gifts for the purpose God intended.
