"For you were called to freedom, brothers.  Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another."

Galatians 5:13

"For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve..."

Mark 10:45

God created each and every one of us with a unique purpose.  He equipped us with special personalities and skills so that we might be able to make an impact for His kingdom while on the earth.  Christians are referred to as brothers and sisters of a family, or members of the same body.  Each person does his part in serving so that the entire body might fulfill its purpose of bringing glory to God.

The skills that God has equipped us with to serve the body of Christ are known as spiritual gifts.  "Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone." 1 Corinthians 12:4–6
We all have different gifts, but all of them are equally important in carrying out God's plan on the earth.

Some of our spiritual gifts are obvious, but others can be difficult to identify.  You might discover which spiritual gifts you have, including which ones are the strongest, through prayer, surveys, classes, and serving at church.  You can begin serving before you know your gifts because the experience will give you insight into where you work best, which in turn will help you identify your gifts.

Once you have identified your spiritual gifts, you should find a way to use those gifts to serve the church.  We are all called to serve, and to do so with love (1 Corinthians 13:1–3).  Endless service from a wrong heart will do no good.  But when we serve out of love, God is glorified.

Serve at the river

Use your unique gifts to help build the Kingdom.
