DISCERNING YOUR GIFTS
God has given each Christian two vitally important Gifts. The first is the Gift of faith in Jesus Christ, his work of redemption, and thus forgiveness of sin. The second is the Gift of one or more special abilities, which are to be used for the purpose of unifying the body of Christ and for the growth of God's Kingdom. These abilities are called Spiritual Gifts and they are received through our baptism. Like other presents, it is impossible to fully appreciate and make use of our Spiritual Gifts until they have been opened.
