HAVE YOU DISCOVERED, DEVELOPED & DEPLOYED YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFT(S)?
On May 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the Spiritual Gifts Ministry (SGM) will sponsor a Spiritual Gifts Symposium here at First Baptist where we will explore the biblical basis of spiritual gifts. Refreshments will be served.
A spiritual gift is a special ability that God gives, according to his grace, to each member of the body of Christ to be used for the development of the church.
According to research pre-sented by Charles Schwartz in Three Colors of Ministry (ChurchSmart, 2004):
- 80% of Christians don’t know what their spiritual gifts are
- 20% are not using their gifts in ministry-related tasks
- 51% are happier after dis-covering gifts
- 72% are happier when dis-covered gifts are applied to concrete tasks within the church
- Every Christian has at least one spiritual gift.
- Gifts and call go together.
- Christians complement each other.
- Each Christian may have a different “gift mix.”
- There are different degrees of giftedness.
- There is a difference between spiritual gifts and the fruit of the Spirit.
- There is a difference between spiritual gifts and universal Christian responsibilities.
