Is There A Place For Me? If you're new to the body of Christ, or even if you're not, you may find yourself in the position of asking the question where you fit in within the confines of your current congregation. This question is more common than you might think. You are not alone! More than one person has shared with me in the past that they struggle to find their place within the body of Christ and where they can best serve. This dilemma can be caused by a number of reasons. However, even in the midst of the uncertainty about where you "fit" --rest assured there is a place for you and if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead (Rom. 10:9-10) then God is at work in you for His good pleasure! (Phil. 2:12-13)
|Where Do I Fit In? Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts|
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects but the same God who works all things in all persons.
I Corinthians 12:4-6
Discover Your Spiritual Gifts! If you are a believer, you have a spiritual gift(s). You are more valuable than the sparrows and God works through His children and uses the gifts that He gives them. One of the steps in the process of knowing where you "fit in" is understanding how you have been gifted. However, your gifts should not be the only factor that determine where, when, and how you serve; remember Moses! Interested in the areas where you might be gifted? Take this spiritual gifts survey.
Did You Discover Something New? If you decided to take the survey -- did it make a difference for you? Do you have a better idea of where you can be used within the body of Christ? Feel free to share if you found this survey to be helpful. And, I will be praying for those that might read this post, that the Lord would use you mightily this year!
