How to Find Your Gift

When we look around and see others serving the church in ways we cannot it can be tempting to doubt our own ability to serve. 1 Corinthians 12:7 says, “Now to each one the manifestation of the spirit is given for the common good.” This means that, as Christians, the Holy Spirit of God lives inside each of us and gives us specific gifts to serve those around us.

God wants to use us to serve others, and He created us with a specific gift to do so! Verses 8-10 give examples of some of the ways that God gifts His sons and daughters to serve those around us.  Each gift is different from the others, but the Bible tells us they serve a distinct purpose. This means we can rest in the knowledge that the Holy Spirit equips us to serve the Church and those around us. Saved people serve people, and just like Jesus saves us, the Holy Spirit equips us to serve.

The best way to find what gift God has given to you is to begin serving. If you like children, consider volunteering with KidSpring. If you enjoy meeting new people, consider serving in one of the many Guest Services roles.  By trying different areas of service, the Holy Spirit will reveal to you the unique ways that He has created you to serve.
