How to Find Your Spiritual Gifts

I Corinthians 12:4-6
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons. 

Every Christian has a spiritual gift according to the Bible to be used for the glory of God and the building of the Church. However, not everyone knows what his or gift may be.

To help with identifying your particular gift, a helpful tool may be a spiritual gifts inventory or test. The key is to be prayerful and answer honestly each question. Usually, you are asked to rate a task on a scale of 1-5. For example, you may be asked if you enjoy preaching. It's ok if you give it a 1 if you really dislike it. Nobody is judging you. Preaching isn't for everyone. Not everyone is called to be a preacher, teacher, or missionary. There are those who are called to be prayer warriors, discerners, and givers. All Christians are apart of the body of Christ and serve a special purpose. Once you find your purpose, fulfill your role with joy and know that God has called you for a reason. Here are some tests to get you started:
