 What Are Spiritual Gifts?

A spiritual gift is an ability God gives to enable us to serve other people.

Romans 12:3-8 and 1 Corinthians 12:1-31 describe the gifts given by the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 4:12-13 explains we serve others with our gift, “so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”

Spiritual gifts are given by God to unify, teach us about Jesus, and help us mature together.

What Is My Spiritual Gift?

There are a variety of spiritual gifts, but each is important. “From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work” (Ephesians 4:16). Notice that each part is needed just like each part of a body is needed. If I stub my toe, I learn quickly that I need a healthy toe for my brain to even function at its best. Each follower of Christ needs the others to function together the way God intends.

Because spiritual gifts are given to build up the people of God, the best place to discover and use your gift is in the local church. Here you will find many opportunities to serve. Among other Christ followers, you can use your gift to help others grow spiritually and together create an environment that points people to Jesus.

Spiritual gifts are often the things that you are passionate about, move your heart, and are things you enjoy doing.
