The Bible teaches us that followers of Jesus Christ are known as His Church and His Body because they are endowed with natural abilities (spiritual gifts) to represent Him and carry on His work in the world.
In the last seven teachings in this series, we have focused our attention on the 7 ways that God’s Holy Spirit operates (as outlined in Romans 12) through the spiritual gifts of messenger, helper, explainer, motivator, organizer, provider, and caregiver and how we can discover which gift we have been endowed with.
Today’s teaching is designed to help you think about how you are best involved with the lives of others and encourage you to compare the focus of each gift (or embedded natural ability) to see if one of them fits you.
Remember that there is no pressure when you are functioning in your gift. It was embedded in you by your creator. You are your gift. You are being yourself and will be able to help others almost tirelessly, and you will find true joy and fulfillment in this life.
