How to know what your Spiritual gifts are

This is an important question for every Christian because God has put us in the world to witness for Him. Therefore He has made sure that each of us has at least one gift we can use for His glory. We must use what He has given us to help build up the church of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-12).

 If we really want to find out what God has given us, He will surely show us. Firstly, we should pray and give ourselves to Him. God wants us before He wants our gifts, like the people of Macedonia in 2 Corinthians 8:5.

 Then we should remember that every gift God has given is useful to Him, whether it is small or big (Matthew 25:14-30). This means there should be no pride or selfishness in using our gifts.

 Sometimes the gift God has given us is seen in the things we like to do, or what we do naturally. If we find we can serve God by doing this, we should do them well, develop them and do them without a thought of being seen by others or publicly thanked (1 Corinthians 10:31).

 But you can be sure of one thing: if you are a true Christian, God has given you one or more spiritual gifts. He wants you to use them in the church (1 Corinthians 12:7-11). You do not receive a gift for selfish purposes, but "for the common good". And it is the Holy Spirit who decides who should receive what gift. We receive our gifts, not because we deserve them, but by God's grace. Identify the gift you have received, develop it and use it to God's glory. You don't have to be like anybody else. Each one of us received a different gift.
