Spiritual Gifts & Purpose

God is the most generous gift-giver you can ever know. Think about it for a moment. Here are just some of the gifts the Bible says God has given us: Breath in our lungs (Genesis 2:7), Family (Psalm 68:6), Wisdom (James 1:5), Joy (1 Thessalonians 1:6), Freedom (1 Corinthians 1:30), Peace (John 14:27), and Eternal life (John 3:16).

Another way God gives to us is by empowering us with what we call spiritual gifts, or gifts of the Holy Spirit. When you intentionally develop and use these gifts for God’s glory the world is transformed.

STEP 1 – Discover Your Gifts
Every child of God is filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, specially gifted to play a unique and valued role in the body of Christ. No one is without gift or purpose. Spiritual gifts are not our talents or skills. They are the grace of God at work within us, empowering us to match our deep passions with the world’s deep needs.
