Spiritual Gifts

On Sunday evening I watched the In Touch Ministries show where Charles Stanley was doing a study on spiritual gifts. It was a very nice study as he was not only going over what the gift was, but how people with a certain gift can sometimes be misinterpreted. The particular show I watched was on the gift of prophecy and I was very surprised that I had a lot of the qualities of that gift. I guess my view of “prophecy” was more in the line of Old Testament prophets, but Charles Stanley presented it as a “perceiver” which I thought was interesting.

If you don’t know what your spiritual gifts are, you should check out this Spiritual Gifts Survey that was listed on the In Touch Ministries website. Only recently have I tried to figure out my gifts and this survey helped confirm some of my gifts, and give me some insights into what it all means. My top two were “The Perceiver” and “The Teacher”. Now I need to figure out how to best utilize my gifts!

I too have searched lately to find my gifts and I did the survey you mentioned. It really just confirmed what I knew in my spirit. The hard part is putting those gifts to use. You really have to rise above the things of the flesh and take on a spiritual attitude.

I am really enjoying your blog. Keep up the good work. I know the Lord is blessing you.

Thank you for those kind words. Writing here helps me keep my focus on God but I'm also glad others enjoy reading it.

The hyperlink is there, mouse over where it says "spiritual gift survey". I need to try and change my link color, it's too subtle.
