Loving the Church – gifts in the church

Since the Bible does not provide detailed surveys and tests to help you determine your spiritual gifts, you can be sure that you don’t need such things to discover and use your gifts! The best advice I have heard for finding and using your gifts is to go to work within the church. What kinds of things do you want to do at church? What kinds of ministries have you participated in that have seemed most fruitful? In what kinds of roles have your spiritual leaders found you to be most effective? Don’t worry about what exactly your gift is. All Christians are commanded to carry out all the responsibilities that the gifts represent (except for the miraculous ones).
