Steps for Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts

If you have taken this step, write Yes before the step.
If you have not taken a particular step but are willing to try that step, write a + before the statement.
If you have not taken a step and are unwilling at this time to try it, write a - by that step. (These steps are not in a particular progression or order.)

1. Explore the possibilities.

  • Study the Bible.
  • Learn my church's position on gifts.
  • Read extensively about spiritual gifts.
  • Get to know gifted people.
  • Make gift a conversation piece.

2. Experiment with as many gifts as you can.

  • Look for needs that God can meet through you.
  • Use a gifts inventory.

3. Examine your feelings. Is the gift you are using giving you excitement or a feeling that this is what you want to do more than anything else?

4. Evaluate your effectiveness.

5. Expect confirmation from other Christians.
