Spiritual Gifts Evaluation

"Now concerning spiritual gifts brethren, I do not want you to be unaware!" (1 Corinthians 12:1)
One of the greatest discoveries in the world won't be found in the mines of Africa or within the tombs
of Egypt. It's found right within you! It's your spiritual gift which God has given every single believer.
He knew that apart from His equipping and gifting, we could never function in our assignment within
the Body of Christ.
"And since we have gifts according to the grace given to us, let us each exercise them
accordingly."(Romans 12:6)
This spiritual gifts evaluation will help you narrow down, and hopefully nail-down your place in the
Church. Every person is valuable and critical to God's plan. God's responsibility is to give the gifts.
Ours is to receive, identify, develop and use them!
What a joy it is to discover that the greatest gifts given lie right within us! You don't have to travel to
exotic places. I'll save you the trip. Come to Jesus instead. He has the very best for you... and He's
right here!

Rejoicing together,
