In addition to having a plan and purpose in each of our lives, He endows each of us with spiritual gifts. These spiritual gifts can be used in both secular and church settings to strengthen both believers and non-believers.It is important to know how you and your spouse are connected. The Bible names various spiritual gifts 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12These aren’t the only spiritual gifts God uses, but if you’re unfamiliar with your own, this is a great place to start. Additionally, you can purchase our inventory of spiritual gifts online and in print. These are similar to exam schools conducted a few years ago. These inventories consist of a series of multiple-choice questions. Write your rating for that gift in the corresponding numbered speech bubble. For example, a question might be, “I hear from the Lord through visions and dreams, and I feel called to share that message with others.” This word corresponds to the gift of prophecy. You must answer according to how similar you are to that statement. Answers range from “most likely” to “not at all”. Then use the back grid to add numbers. The gift with the highest number of gifts is closest to how you receive gifts. This is not an absolute authority on the subject, but it does give you a good idea of what spiritual gifts you have given to your character, passions, and tendencies.
If you have never inventoried spiritual gifts before, this may be a very refreshing process. Discovering God’s unique pattern in your life is exciting. Realize that no one is as completely talented as you. No one can do what you do. You were put on this earth for a reason, and your spiritual gifts are part of it. Taking the test will help you determine if ministry or evangelism is part of those spiritual gifts. If you feel called and your mission doesn’t come to mind as a spiritual gift, don’t worry. Let’s pray together as a couple. Ask God to confirm this calling in your life in a way that is clear to both of you.
