The Test!

I sat down with a church leader yesterday to talk about a test that I took. Two months ago I took a spiritual Gifts Test. The test consisted of 125 questions. The results I found very shocking. There are certain things that I did not realize about myself until I looked at scores on the test. The gifts that I scored high in were:

Pastoral - 12/15 the gift of pastor is the special ability that God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to assume a long-term personal responsibility for the spiritual welfare of a group of believers. Eph. 4:11-14; I Timothy 3:1-7; John 10:1-18; I Peter 5:1-3

Knowledge - 12/15 the gift of knowledge is the special ability that God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to discover, accumulate, analyze, and clarify information and ideas which are pertinent to the growth and will-being of the body. I Cor. 2:14; I Cor. 12:8; Acts 5:1-11; Col. 2:2-3; II Cor. 11:6

Discernment - 13/15 The gift of discerning of spirits is the special ability that God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to know with assurance whether certain behavior purported to be of God is in reality divine, human, or Satanic. I Cor. 12:10; Acts 5:1-11; Acts 16:16-18; I John 4:1-6; Matt. 16:21-23

Exhortation - 14/15 The gift of exhortation is the special ability that God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to minister words of comfort, consolation, encouragement, and counsel to other members of the body in such a way that they feel helped and healed. Romans 12:8; I Timothy 4:13; Hebrews 10:25; Acts 14:22

Giving 12/15 - The gifts of giving is the special ability that God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to contribute their material resources to the work of the Lord with liberality and cheerfulness. Romans 12:8; II Cor. 8:1-7; II Cor. 9:2-8; Mark 12:41-44

Faith 13/15 - The gifts of faith is the special ability that God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to discern with extraordinary confidence the will and purposes of God for his Work. I Cor. 12:9; Acts 11:22-24; Acts 27:21-25; Hebrews 11; Romans 4:18-21

Leadership 12/15 - The gift of leadership is the special ability that God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to set goals in accordance with God's purpose for the future and to communicate these goals to others in such a way that they voluntarily and harmoniously work together to accomplish those goals for the glory of God. I Timothy 5:17; Acts 7:10; Acts 15:7-11; Romans 12:8; Hebrews 13:17; Luke 9:51

Administration 12/15 - The gift of administration is the special ability God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to understand clearly the immediate and long-range goals of a particular unit of the body of Christ and to devise and execute effective plans for the accomplishment of those goals. I Cor. 12:28; Acts 6:1-7; Luke 14:28-30; Titus 1:5

Serving 13;15 - The gift of service is the special ability that God gives to certain members of the body of Christ to identify the unmet needs involved in a task related to God's work, and to make use of available resources to meet those needs and help accomplish the desired results. II Tim 1:16-18; Romans 12:7; Acts 6:1-7; Titus 3:14; Gal. 6: 2,10

I scored 0 out of 15 in Celibacy! Praise the Lord for that! Amen!

What was revealed was very encouraging. There have been times in my life where I feel that I don't have anything to attribute to God. I though that I was dust under His feet.

Have you taken a Spiritual Gifts test? I would be willing to type it up and e-mail it to you if you are interested. It is neat to find things out the gifts that God has given to you.

My next step is using the gifts that God has given to me. This is going to an interesting ride. I guess that is one of the reasons why I named this blog place Discovering God's Gifts! Praise the Lord for that.

Please let me know if you would like to take the test.

Hey - I'd love to take the test. I'm glad you happened upon my dieting log - though you might find a bit more interesting.

Working for the Lord is the ultimate task - and the ultimate reward.

You posted on my blog yesterday (Corban1227). Thanks for that. I think I took the spiritual gifts test many years ago, when I was in college. I would love to have that. Exhortation is a great gift and can be a blessing in SO MANY ways! And whether someone is "gifted" in that area or not, it needs to be something that christians work on. Thanks for posting that. I enjoyed reading it.
