Spiritual Gifts: Spreading God’s Word

GiftsHave you ever wondered about your spiritual gifts? Maybe you see gifts in others – like their gift of singing, playing the piano, teaching children, creating art, dancing, running a marathon, leadership, ministering, healing, public speaking, or any number of things. And maybe when you see people with these incredible gifts, you shirk into the shadows because you don’t feel you really have a gift that makes a difference.

Stop and think again!

God has blessed each and every one of us with a special gift. It’s within us as believers and all we have to do is discover it! There are many gifts that make a huge difference in the world and help us glorify God in miraculous ways! People often overlook their own spiritual gift because they fail to see how it can be used to glorify God!

Consider some of these gifts:

  • Friendship
  • Listening
  • Encouraging
  • Cleaning
  • Cooking
  • Praying
  • Organizing
  • Kindness
  • Comforting
  • Mercy
  • Writing
  • Cooking
  • Visiting
  • Problem-solving
  • Multi-lingual
  • Sensitivity
  • Hospitality
  • Giving
  • Wisdom
  • Financial competence
  • Faith

Ask God to help you identify and fulfill your spiritual gifts and you will be rewarded in so many ways. Every believer has special gifts and talents – we all just need to discover them within ourselves and then use them for others. Imagine how much better the world would be if everyone fully tapped into their spiritual gifts to praise God and spread His Word in ways that demonstrate caring, loving attitudes!

Your gifts can speak for themselves – and others will see Jesus in you, even if you don’t say a word – because using your gift(s) is a way to help spread God’s message to the world!
