Ministry Profile: How Your Spiritual Gifts Fit
Your life is like a puzzle. The pieces fit together to make a whole. When you combine your spiritual gifts, personality, passions, and experience you will discover a picture which shows you how you can best serve the Lord with maximum effectiveness. ----YOUR MINISTRY PROFILE !
Spiritual gifts are a special divine empowerment to do what God wants you to do. They point you in the direction of the ministry area(s) in which you should be involved. As you consider your passions, personality, and experience in combination with your gifts, you will know which tasks to zero in on within those areas and the people to whom you should minister.
To illustrate how spiritual gifts work in combination with all of who we are, think about the gift of teaching. Some people will say they have a gift to teach children. Their spiritual gift is teaching, not teaching children. No where in Scripture does God categorize gifts according to age levels, gender, or other distinctions within which they operate. Someone with the gift of teaching could teach any age if gifting was the only factor. The bent toward children comes from the person's passions and past experience. Certain personality temperaments do better with children than others.
To find your best fit in ministry, begin by discovering how you are gifted but go beyond to factor in your passions, personality, and experience.
