What are Spiritual Gifts?

Spiritual Gifts are God given abilities that edify the church and glorify God. “There are different gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.” I Cor. 12:4-6 NIV

This scripture sets the stage for understanding Spiritual Gifts in a simple, systematic way that allows you to discover your gifts. Yes, you do have a Spiritual Gift from God and He can’t wait for you to know and use the precious gift He has given you.

Spiritual Gifts are not the same as Talents and Fruit of the Spirit.Talents are given to everyone by God, but can be lost if not used (Matt. 25:14-30). Fruit of the Spirit are not gifts, but the result of walking in the Spirit and overcoming the flesh (Gal. 5:22-26).
