Devotional: Unleashing Your Spiritual Gifts By Kenroy White Posted on February 1, 2023 3 min read 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Spiritual gifts are divine endowments that God has given to every believer to build up the body of Christ and advance His kingdom on earth. The Apostle Paul wrote extensively about spiritual gifts in his letters to the Corinthian and Roman churches. He said in 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, “There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.” Paul’s message is clear: every believer has been given a gift by God, and these gifts are meant to be used to serve and love others in the body of Christ. The first step in discovering your spiritual gift is to pray and ask God to reveal it to you. You can consult with a mentor or pastor who can help you identify your strengths and abilities. Once you have identified your spiritual gift, the next step is to use it to serve others. Paul wrote in Romans 12:6-8, “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” Whatever your gift may be, remember that it is not for your own benefit but for the benefit of others. Use it to serve and love those around you, and watch how God will use it to build up His kingdom and bring glory to His name. Spiritual gifts are a vital part of the body of Christ, and every believer has been given a gift by God. It is our responsibility to identify and use our gifts to serve and love others, and in doing so, we will bring glory to God and advance His kingdom on earth.
