Paul’s list of spiritual gifts are centered on the church. It seems natural that any gifts from the Spirit – for example, service – might be suited to character traits we already possess and thus also apply to our lives away from church. But the context of these verses is of the church as a body.
Questions for further thought:
1. Is Paul’s list of spiritual gifts here comprehensive? What other gifts might there be?
2. How much do you exercise your spiritual gift specifically at church?
Challenge: In this series, we will learn more about how to discover our spiritual gifts. Start praying now to know more about your gifts, and ask for direction about how your gift fits into the body of believers.
