Week 5: Gifts of the Holy Spirit Part Two

Carri Pratt

“God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of Spiritual Gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” 
1 Peter 4:10

Last week we looked at the fact that the Holy Spirit gives gifts to all believers. We looked at 1 Corinthians 12:7-10. This list included attributes such as abilities, messages and power. 

This week we will look at a separate text found in Romans 12:6-8:

”In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you.  If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.

This list shows us the Spiritual Gifts of Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Encouraging, Giving, Leadership and Showing Kindness and implies that we should know our gifts and use them well.

So how do we discover our Spiritual Gifts? And how do we discover the Spiritual Gifts of our children?

I'm so glad you asked! Actually, there are many online "Spiritual Gifts Tests" that you can search for. I would like to share two with you that I find helpful.

The first is to be filled out by the parent. It is by Adam Stadtmiller.  Click here for the Free Spiritual Gifts Test.

A second option is to allow your children to complete the survey. A free online test can be found below:
