Discover Your God Giving Gift

 

Hello LOVELIES! How are you this lovely morning? Things have been so crazy the last couple of weeks and i haven’t been able to blog like i should. Today i wanted to talk about “What Is Your God Giving Gift?” After joining my church over 2 years ago they had us take some very interesting courses that i wanted to share with you. The assessment was taken on assessme.org which information was provided by my church. I believe if you are not associated with any church you still may register and take an assessment.

After answering multiple questions i was finally matched. Here is what it revealed.

Yes my TOP spiritual gift was a Teacher. The gift of Teaching is a highly honored spiritual gift within the assembly of Christ Followers, but it is also a gift with severe responsibilities before God. The Bible warns us that those who teach among the people will be judged more harshly by God (James 3:1). A spiritually healthy teacher will not simply instruct the minds of his/her students, but will first instruct and apply unto him/herself the lessons taught by God through Scripture, and then only after the teacher can model the biblical lesson within his/her life, will he/she be authentically able teach the lesson to others.1 Corinthians 12:28 lists the gift of Teaching, when applied within the church, as an essential office within the ministry…subservient only to the greater offices of Prophets and Apostles. Ephesians 4:11-14 makes it clear that the teacher’s job description includes “Equipping the people for the works of service”. Paul specifically lists Teaching as one of the spiritual gifts in Romans 12:7.

My second top GIFT was of Encouragement. A person possessing the gift of encouragement has a unique ability to help others gain a positive emotional and spiritual perspective on their circumstances. Encouragers are people who find the positive in any situation. For them, “the glass is always half full”. Encouragers are at their best when they can motivate the assembly of Christ Followers to persevere in the struggle against sin and to strive for the accomplishment of God’s mission for the Church. The word Encouragement means “to instill courage into another person”.Romans 12:8 and Hebrews 10:24, 25 instructs all Christ Followers to “encourage one another”. This gift of encouragement is clearly exemplified in the life of a man named Joseph. Joseph is first mentioned in Acts 4:36 and 37. In this account we learn that Joseph sold all that he had and laid the money at the feet of the Apostles. From that time on, Joseph’s name was changed to “Barnabas” which means “Son of Encouragement”. In Acts 9:26 and 27 we learn that when all the disciples were afraid of Paul (Saul) and questioned whether his conversion was real, it was Barnabas that risked his own life to visit Paul and to introduce him to the body of believers. In Acts 13, the Holy Spirit instructed the Church at Antioch to set apart Paul and Banabus for a special missionary work…and so Barnabas became Paul’s ministry partner.Following Barnabas’ encouragement roles, we can identify three major ways in which the gift of Encouragement may express itself within the Church. Your personality style and calling from the Holy Spirit may enable you to focus the use of your gift.

Last, My TOP 3rd Spiritual Gift was Service. The gift of Help is sometimes also called the gift of Service or Mercy. The common attribute of this spiritual gift is the passion to humbly serve and support others within the assembly of Christ Followers. The person possessing the gift of Service will display a natural servant heart and will seek the welfare of others, even to the point of self-sacrifice. It is not uncommon for people with the gift of Helps to feel like they don’t have any gifts at all. But this is far from true. When the gift of Helps is appropriately applied within the body of Christ, the helper is acting very much like Jesus who said of his own ministry, “I did not come to be served, but to serve” (Matthew 20:28). Paul speaks honorably about Phoebe who had the gift of Helps…”I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant of the church in Cenchrea. I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints and give her any help she may need from you, for she has been a great help to many people, including me” (Romans 16:1 and 2). In 1 Corinthians 12:27-31, the Apostle Paul also lists “helping others” among the “greater gifts”. 1 Peter 4:11 instructs: “if any one serves, he should do it in the strength that God provides….”

As i journey through this thing we call spiritual growth i pray my gift can touch others. I pondered often what could i teach? Where can i utilize my encouragement for others and how can i serve? I’m learning day by day ya’ll and hope you will too

BE BLESSED

The Narrow Road

 

HEY LOVELIES! How is your week going so

far? Its been a little rough for me due to all this changing weather. My sinuses have been in full force! I just want to shoot to you my devotional. GOD is truly guiding me and working on my path and want you to GROW with me as well. Spiritual growth takes place when we turn from our sins and turn toward the new life GOD has for us.When enough is enough then we must ask GOD to redeem our lives. The path to Christ is not easy and calls for us to follow a narrow and sometimes difficult path. Jesus said,” Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it”(Matthew 7: 13-14) We all have our own path we choose to live but without GOD it can be a LOOONG narrow adventure. When we realize the possibilities of the wonderful life here and in eternity that GOD has called us to, we will eagerly ask him to transform our lives and make us living testimonies to his grace.

BE BLESSED
