September 17

As I was exploring my gifts, I realized that the way I use them comes together for this daily post. However, if I don’t stay connected by keeping a close relationship with God, through the Holy Spirit, I couldn’t write each and every day like I do. It may not always appeal to you, but God has someone in mind when He perks my interest in a subject, and He knows the words needed to draw their interest to Him. He wants all of His children to do the work of the Kingdom, and to build up the body of Christ until it matures, and is no longer easily drawn away by every crazy cult that is put in the path by the devil. Every believer is equipped with at least one gift of the Holy Spirit, and rather than continuing to try and guess what it is, do a little research and find out yours. Some “smarty pants” has figured out a way to test you to find out what those gifts are. There are a lot of questions to answer, but there are a lot of gifts. The more questions they ask the more accurate the results will be. If you keep asking God what your purpose is, maybe this is the first step to finding out. Don’t just sit there doing nothing, being tossed about by every wind of doctrine, get busy becoming a useful part of the body of Christ. If you decide to take a test today, share with us your results so we can encourage you!

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Ephesians 4:11-14 

If you haven’t discovered your gift/gifts, there are many online tests that can give you guidance and help you see what they are. You might be surprised. As a precaution, I always go to the “About” section on any website that I visit to make sure their Statement of Faith matches my own. I suggest you do that for any online information you are seeking.
