Pregnant?

Are you pregnant?

Don't be so quick to answer. Wait until you read the whole post, then answer.

God gives us spiritual gifts. We don't all have the same ones. We all have different ones and we work together to form the perfect body of Christ. What if we are just hanging out, going along day after day, each one as mundane as the next.
God challenges us to be different.

So, I ask this. What spiritual gifts do we have? Are we using them? Do we use the ones we know about to our full potential?

So in other words, are we pregnant with spiritual gifts that we're not aware of? Are they inside us gowing and being nurtured by His words, His love.

Romans 11:29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.

They aren't going away.....are we ready to give birth to them?

  1. Lindi, what an interesting post!

    It reminded me of a preview I saw for a show the other day where they were interviewing women who had babies who didn't know they were pregnant. :)

    Thanks for the reminder to use the gifts God has given us!

  3. One of the things I love doing is taking the spiritual gifts tests. As I age, my gifts seem to change or maybe shift. I love that. I have changed my volunteering to fit the gifts that come to the surface. But one of my gifts that has never changed is that of encouragement. It's funny. I never thought of it like that, but it happens to be the one people mention. I hope that I can always be an encourager.

  4. Lindi,
    I took a spiritual gifts test a couple of years ago. You're right, we may have gifts we're not even using! Like Angie mentioned, I think our gifts may shift over the years.
