Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good (1 Corinthians 12:7). The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12). This survey will point you in the right direction of identifying your spiritual gift. A spiritual gift is a manifestation of the Spirit. Spiritual gifts are for the common good of the church. God gifts individuals spiritually born again (members of the church) to equip and build up the body of Christ. As you grow, mature and develop in Christ you will better understand your gifts and how you can use them for His purposes. This survey is a spiritual gift tendency study. This particular survey is not a complete listing of spiritual gifts, but rather a listing of the most common gifts that easily fit into ministries within the First Baptist Church of O'Fallon's ministry base. The Bible describes the church as the visible body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12). God chose the human body as the analogy of the church because the body of Chirst is a living organism. The church is a living body, unified in purpose while diverse in the parts. As you complete the Spiritual Gifts Survey, the references to "the body" are referring to the body of the church. Each member has a place in the body - and every part belongs. To feel you do not belong to your church because you are not like those who seem to be more visible is to deny how God put the church together. Every member belongs! Your spiritual gift is not a special ability you develop on your own. It is a skill given to you by the Holy Spirit. You do not seek a spiritual gift; however, you should prayerfully seek to understand how God has already gifted you for His purposes. For further study, in your Bible, ready Ephesians 4:1-16 and 1 Corinthians 12:27-31 which relate to spiritual gifts. _______________ To take the Spiritual Gifts Survey, download the .PDF booklet "My Spiritual Gift Assessment" and either print or fill out digitally using your .PDF reader of choice.
