Gifts are for giving

A friend reminded me that I LOVE discovering spiritual gifts in people and encouraging the release of those gifts for the benefit of others. God gives every one of his followers certain "graces" (most often translated "spiritual gifts") that are to benefit other followers AND the world around us to draw people into relationship with him. Many people don't consciously think about this and consequently leave dormant grace gifts that could be making a difference in life with people.

Do you know your graces?  Do you love serving others or leading?  Do you find hosting people to be absolute joy?  Do you share your faith effortlessly? Do you get frustrated when others struggle to believe God will do what he says he will do?  Those are indications of gifts God has given.  Explore these Bible passages (I Corinthians 12Romans 12:6-11, Ephesians 4:7, 11-13) and ask God what your gifts are then release them, give out of that special grace (ease in giving, joyful, "natural") provided by God just for you.
