to print this to test other people!

GETTING A GRIP ON YOUR GIFT

EDITOR'S NOTE-When we are born, we all possiss God-given talents. But, when we accept Christ as our Savior, God blesses us with something more-spiritual gifts. These gifts are given specifically to believers by the Holy Spirit to help them minister withing the body of Christ. The Bible provides three basic "gift lists"-Romans 12:6-8;1 Corinthians 12:4-11,27-28; and Ephisians 4:11.

Since the Holy Spirit gives the gifts, He is the only Obe Who can tuly reveal them to the believer. But this test (along with prayer and the Spirit's leading) is designed to help you understand some of your strengths and interests, which may help you indentify your own spiritual gift(s)
