Can you be spiritually gifted?

To be spiritually gifted means to have an exceptional capacity to transcend self-centered needs and desires and to rise beyond the human inclination to categorize individuals into those who are "worthy" of attention and respect and those who are not. Everyone, however, is a candidate for compassion for the spiritually endowed. The term "spiritually gifted" was originally used in relation to certain people claimed to have connections with God or the divine. However, today it is used to describe anyone who exhibits an extraordinary degree of skill or knowledge in any area of life - including art, science, music, religion, and more.

The word "gifted" has negative connotations for some people because it is often associated with talent or ability that is seen as a natural gift from God. They may feel that they were not chosen by God to be spiritually gifted so this aspect of their nature can't be improved on through effort. This belief is not only discouraging but can also lead them to reject their spiritual gifts completely if they believe there is no way to improve upon what they were given. The truth is that everyone has the potential to become more spiritually gifted through conscious effort over time.

People differ in the extent to which they utilize their spiritual gifts. Some use their gifts every day to help others while others never give them a thought. There is no right or wrong way to use one's spiritual gifts - only individual choice.

What does the Bible say about giftedness in Christians?

"Giftedness" is not a spiritual gift, as in Romans 12 or I Corinthians 12-14; rather, it is a natural endowment. There are three main views on this issue within Christian theology. Some believe that all believers have the same giftings, while others believe that some believers have more than others due to their greater faithfulness to Christ. Still others believe that there are different levels of glory for different gifts. For example, some believe that apostles have an exclusive level of glory that other prophets and teachers do not.

The first view was held by the early church fathers. They believed that we are all equal in our relationship with God but also equal in our unique callings. The Bible contains many references to the "body" of Christ being strengthened by its members doing their different tasks (see 1 Cor. 12). This idea continues into modern times in statements like George Whitfield's that "all Christians are gifted for special duties."

The second view was held by John Calvin and other Reformed theologians. They believed that there are different degrees of glory to be had by the use of our various gifts. For example, Paul told Titus that he was left behind so that others could take his place as missionaries (see 2 Tim. 4:19).

What makes a talent a gift or a gift?

A talent is the outcome of anything in your DNA or through training on something. A spiritual talent is the consequence of the Holy Spirit's power working through you. For example, I will not claim that playing the guitar is a spiritual gift from God. However, I can say that my spiritual gift has allowed me to play the guitar. My gift has also caused me to write songs.

Talents are different from gifts because everyone has talents, but not everyone has a spiritual gift. Only those who have faith in Jesus Christ will find out their spiritual gift by testing it. Only those with a spiritual gift should pursue it diligently. The more we use our gift, the better it gets. There are no limits to how much strength you can have at your fingertips through spiritual gifting.

Every human being was created with a certain number of talents; some people were created with more talents than others. It is up to each individual to discover their spiritual gift(s) and to develop them fully. This does not happen automatically; it requires hard work.

God has given everyone he loves a special gift. What makes one person's gift unique is whether it is being used for God's glory. Some gifts are physical, such as dancing or singing, while others are not.
