“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-6
What we call a talent, scripture calls a spiritual gift. A spiritual gift is not a natural aptitude, like having an ear for music or an eye for painting. Nor is it a developed ability, like shooting under par on a golf course or turning a perfect spindle on a lathe. Spiritual gifts do not explain what you can do. They define who you are in all aspects of your life and faith. They establish your place and function in the Body of Christ – and at Buncombe Street!
We offer a tool to help you identify your spiritual gifts and to find ministries in the church where you can join your gifts to the gifts of others. This tool, the BSUMC Spiritual Gifts Survey, is available online and is for anyone who wants to find out a little more about their place in the Body of Christ. We encourage you to take the survey. Pray about the results. And then put those spiritual gifts to work!
