Who Are My Gifts For?

This past Sunday at Element Church we continued our sermon series called “Fences: Living Beyond the boundaries”.  In this message, I talked about what it looks like to live beyond the boundaries with our gifts.

Each of us has a spiritual gift.  Romans 12:6 says In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. 

1 Corinthians 12:7 A spiritual gift is given to each of us…

I’m all for discovering what our spiritual gifts are, but there is a danger to me that must be addressed.  I think sometimes we can take a spiritual gifts test and discover what our spiritual gift is, but then it’s easy to allow the knowledge of what gifts we have to keep us from being used in the church where God already placed us.  Don’t miss that…it’s huge!

In the message, we said, “Having spiritual gifts won’t matter until I know the right things about the gifts.”  We asked the question, “What should I know about spiritual gifts?”  Preaching from 1 Peter 4:7-10, this clip shows us how spiritual gifts aren’t for us.  You can watch full sermons HERE.
