Ephesians 4:7 (NKJV) But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
There’s a real danger in thinking your spiritual gifts are blessings God has given you for your own benefit. The problem with this selfish viewpoint is that you see your use of these as an option or luxury that you neglect or use according to your will alone. That’s very dangerous and not the proper biblical understanding, which sees your spiritual gifts as expressions of gratitude God wills for you to use in service to others.
So, what are your spiritual gifts? To see and read about teaching on spiritual gifts in the Bible read (Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, and Ephesians 4). Then consider where you have sensed the greatest inclination in serving the Lord. Prayerfully you will make a connection on where the Lord has need of you in the Kingdom of God.
Point to ponder – We all at some point in our life will come to terms with using what the Lord has deposited in us for His divine purposes.
