In the table above are 25 unique spiritual gifts. God gives spiritual gifts to all His people, and these gifts are parallel to natural talents in many ways. Spiritual gifts, however, are received by individuals not when they are born biologically; rather, they are received when we are born again. Just as natural talents must be recognized and developed, so it is with our spiritual gifts. Every Disciple has one or more spiritual gifts to be used in serving God and in obeying His commandments.

There are tests to help you understand your spiritual gifts. A However, having a specific spiritual gift does not relieve the believer from obeying all the commandments. For example someone may have a gift of evangelism but they are still to obey the teaching part of the commandments. Or they may have the gift of mercy, but they still to keep the commandment of evangelism and the 3 parts of the great commission. B, C

Have you been concentrating on serving with your gifts while neglecting obedience to the commands of Jesus and will of God?
