Do You Know Your Spiritual Gift
1 Peter 4:10 advises, "As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace."
Each (in other words all believers) has been given a spiritual gift. When you signed up as a believer, you were baptized into the body of Christ by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13).
You weren't water baptized but baptized by the Spirit into "one body" Jesus Christ's universal church. Your spiritual baptism and regeneration occurred at the same time.
It is possible you have been using your gift without realizing you had one. However, you do have a spiritual gift(s).
In 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, you learn of the Holy Trinity's involvement in your spiritual gift. Verse 4 reminds you that your gift is given by the Spirit, "variety of gifts but one Spirit."
It is the Holy Spirit that lives in you. He knows exactly which gift will fit your personality, passions and desires.
Jesus Your Lord
Then verse 5 gives information as to where your ministry comes. Jesus provides your ministry. "Variety of ministries but one Lord."
Each believer is called into a ministry for the common good of the Body of Christ. Jesus, as your Lord, knows which ministry suits you best. He puts you into ministry to serve him as a good steward and servant.
God the Father
Then finally, it is God who gives the results. "Variety of effects but one God." You and I can in no way cause our ministries to get the perfect results that God has planned for our ministry.
Whenever you can get self out of the way, God can provide big-time results for your ministry.
