Do You Know What Your Gift Is?

I just took the spiritual gift test again, and here are my two top spiritual gifts!

Craftsmanship / Artist Craftsmanship / Artist - The gift that gives the believer the skill to create artistic expressions that produce a spiritual response of strength and inspiration. Skilled Craft - the gift that enables a believer to create, build, maintain, or repair items used within the church.

The divine enablement to creatively design and/or construct items to be used for ministry or the divine enablement to communicate God's truth through a variety of art forms.

People with this gift: - work with wood, cloth, paint, metal, glass, and other raw materials - make things which increase the effectiveness of other's ministries - design and build tangible items and resources for ministry use - work with different kinds of tools and are skilled with their hands - use the arts to communicate God's truth - develop and use artistic skills such as drama, writing, art, music, dance, etc. - use variety and creativity to captivate people and cause them to consider Christ's message - challenge people's perspective of God through various forms of the arts - demonstrate fresh ways to express the Lord's ministry and message.

Exodus 28:3-4 Exodus 31:1-11 Exodus 35:30-35

Music Music - The gift that gives a believer the capability to present personal witness and inspiration to others through instrumental music, singing, or dancing.

The special gift whereby the Spirit enables certain Christians to praise God through music in such a way as to enhance the worship experience of other believers. It gives the believer the desire and capability to express personal faith and provide inspiration and comfort through the playing of a musical instrument, singing, or dancing. The spiritual aspect of the gift is revealed as the gift bearer gives witness to love and praise for the Lord, and thus glorifies God. Those listening or watching become inspired to feel the presence and majesty of God when music, song, or dance uplifts their soul in a manner that brings them closer to their Lord.

People with this gift: - sing or play a musical instrument quite well, and enjoy it - have special joy singing praises to God, either alone or with other people - feel secure in the fact that their musical ability will be of benefit to other people with whom they come in contact - can use their musical ability to help and inspire others to worship God - see that their singing or instrument playing is a spiritual encouragement for others.

1 Samuel 16:14-23 1 Corinthians 14:26 Psalm 33:1-3 Psalm 96:1-2 Psalm 100:1-2 Psalm 149:3 Psalm 150:1-6 Colossians 3:16 2 Chronicles 5:12-13 2 Samuel 6:14-15

Our Deepest Fear!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same: as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others" (Williamson, 1992).
