MEMORY VERSE: “As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” – 1 Peter 4:10

BIBLE PASSAGE: Romans 12:6-8 KJV 

6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;

8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: It is definitely commendable for God’s children to desire to know the spiritual gifts given to them by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of service in the Church and glorify God in the world (2 Timothy 1:6). The existence of a gift is a call to exercise it. Therefore, Apostle Paul advised Timothy, “Neglect not the gift that is in you” (1 Timothy 4:14).

TEXT REVIEW: Romans 12:6-8

LESSON OUTLINES

  1. Identifying Your Spiritual Giftedness
  2. Effective Use Of Spiritual Gifts

1. IDENTIFYING YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTEDNESS

Identifying your spiritual giftedness can be accomplished in various ways:

A. Effective fervent prayers is very vital because the One who knows exactly how you are spiritually gifted is the gift-giver Himself-the Holy Spirit. You can ask Him to show you how you are gifted in order to better use your spiritual gifts for His glory (Luke 11:9, 13).

B. Confirmation from others also gives light to your spiritual giftedness. Other people who see you serving the Lord can often identify a spiritual gift in use that you might take for granted or not recognise (1 Tim. 4:14; 2 Tim. 1:5-6).

C. In addition, you can carry out a self-test. There are questions you can ask yourself as pointers to your spiritual gifts.
Questions like:

  • “What spiritual activity do l enjoy doing?”
  • “What ministry in my life is God blessing?”
  • “What is the Holy Spirit telling or prompting me to do?” (Rom. 12:5-8; 1 Cor. 7:20, 24).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Mention the spiritual gift(s) you have identified in your life since you surrendered your life to Christ

2. EFFECTIVE USE OF SPIRITUAL GIFTS

Teacher should emphasise the following key points:
A. Every Christian is given at least a gift at conversion (Ephesians 4:7).
B. As you manage well your initial gift and as your ministry expands, you may
ask God for other gifts under the direction and promptings of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:31, 14:39).
C. Every gifted person has a proper function in the body of Christ (the church).
D. No gift is superior to others but gifts differ in function (1 Corinthians 12:20-25).
E. No one believer has all the gifts (1 Corinthians 12:28-30), so we need one another.
F. Spiritual gifts are given:

  • To edify (build up) other believers (1 Corinthians 14:12; 26: Ephesians 4:12);
  • To promote growth, unity and love (Ephesians 4:16);
  • To assist in the care of one another (1 Corinthians 12:25; 1 Peter 4:10);
  • To glorify God, especially in the ministry of the Word (1 Peter 4:11).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: As a child of God, how have you been making use of your spiritual gifts?

SUMMARY: Identify your spiritual giftedness and start making use of it to the glory of God.

CONCLUSION: Faithful utilisation of a gift brings increased effectiveness in the ministry, but failure to develop a gift curtails ministry.

EVALUATION: Teacher should ask the students to mention how believers can put their spiritual gifts into effective use.

CLOSING PRAYER: Father, help me to make profit with your gift in me.

ASSIGNMENT: Identity five dangers of not putting your spiritual gifting into use.
