We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. (Romans 12:6-8)
We all have gifts given to us by God. Below, you will find 35 statements which may help you discover your basic gift or gifts. Rate yourself with the following scale by writing the appropriate number to the corresponding question (listed at Q1, Q2, Q3, etc.) As you are reading each statement, ask yourself “Is this statement true in my spiritual life and experience?” You can answer in anticipation, “I’d like to do this in my life”!
After you have completed the test by rating yourself for each of the 35 statements, add the scores in each horizontal row. Record the number in the total column. Your total score for each row indicate your level of interest in that particular gift. The highest scores may lead you to a clear understanding of the basic spiritual gift or gifts God has deposited in your life. It will show your basic tendencies and give you a very strong indication of your gift which motivates you on a daily basis.
