The Theology of Spiritual Gifts:
God has selected each of us to receive certain special abilities. Paul makes this point quite definitely in Romans 12:6. These special abilities will enable us to be a partner with God. This questionnaire will help you to discover the special abilities given to you.
God chooses the gifts given to each of us with perfect knowledge of us. Paul is quite clear about this point in I Corinthians 12:11. God takes into consideration our interests, education, experience and personality. God gives us gifts that fit who we are. This questionnaire will help you discover which six special abilities you have been given.
God wants each of us to use our special abilities. We learn this when we read I Corinthians 12:13-27. God has shared divine power with us so that we can do our part to bring the Good News to the world.
God has given these special abilities to each of us for the purpose of ministry and service. We are assured of this when we read Romans 12:9-21. This questionnaire will help you discover the best ways to use your special abilities.
God intends that the work of His church be accomplished through the special abilities given to each person in our congregation. A study of Ephesians 4:12 reveals this truth plainly.
