Have you ever known someone who was incredible gifted at something, but never used their gifting? What if God has given you gifts to help others, but you’ve never even realized that you had them? The Bible says that the Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to everyone who has turned from their sin to follow Jesus, but it’s estimated that up to 80% of Christians don’t know what their gifts are or how to use them. In this week’s teaching, Pastor Stephen talks about what these “gifts” look like, how to identify what your gifting may be, and how you can begin using them to help the church and others.



As we continue this series on the Holy Spirit, we are spending the final week talking about how the Holy Spirit wants to work in your life through the spiritual gifts He has given you.


  • The Holy Spirit equips follows of Jesus with certain gifts to build up the church and help others become a part of it.

87% of Christians don’t know their spiritual gifts. So this is mostly an underemphasized discussion. God has given ever Christian gifts that He wants them to use. Almost like spiritual advantages, that you have strength in certain areas more than the person next to you.


It’s through these gifts that you can have the greatest impact in the church and outside of it.


  • But what if you went your whole spiritual life without ever know of or using the exact gifts God created for you?

1 Corinthians 12:4-7

1 Corinthians 12:4-6

1 Corinthians 12:7


We are all wired differently.

Spiritual Gifts Are Not:

  1. Natural Talents
  2. Only given to a select few
  3. Evidence of spiritual maturity


Romans 12:4-8


Spiritual Gifts

  1. Prophesy
  2. Serving
  3. Teaching
  4. Encouragement
  5. Giving
  6. Leadership
  7. Kindness/Mercy

God gave some of these gifts as divine revelation on behalf of God’s voice until we had His instructions on how to live under this new covenant. Now that He has revealed Himself through the Word of God, we no longer need some of these gifts.


How To Discover Your Gifts:

  1. Study what the Bible says
  2. 2. Pray that God will show you
  3. Examine what you enjoy and do well
  4. Do what the Holy Spirit leads you to do
  5. Pay attention to what other followers of Jesus say.


You have been given an extra cheat code. And a Holy Spirit empowered advantage for building up a church family and helping others become a part of it.
