The purpose of the gifts are “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, (Verses 12-13 ESV)

  • Be a good steward of the gift(s) using them as though God is pouring through you.
  • Serve as though you had the strength of God behind you so that He is glorified.

13. Seven grace-gifts and ministries

  • prophecy — While praying for a person or about a situation, the Holy Spirit may reveal things to come.
  • practical service — Opportunities abound to serve elderly neighbors, single moms, and in an institutional church.
  • teaching — One on one discipleship, small group discipleship, children’s classes, women’s group
  • encourager (exhorter) — Everyone we meet needs encouragement
  • giving to meet the needs of others — Look for opportunities. Single moms and the elderly need 
  • leadership — events, meetings, groups

14. My gifts

Giving to meet the needs of others — Recently, a mother of two small children was abandoned by her husband. We gave her money for groceries and diapers to tide her over until the military set up a withdrawal from his paycheck to support them. (It breaks my heart that we can’t do things like that more often. The needs are so great.)

Encourager — It just happens.

I’m often called upon or notice opportunities for practical service, especially with my family and elderly neighbors. I’m gifted at noticing small things that need to be done and the willingness to do them, but I’m not gifted with the energy, speed, and organization required to manage full-time caregiving. Nor am I gifted with the leadership skills required to get others to cooperate with me.
