Craig Fritchey - Finding Our Spiritual Gift

Ephesians 4:11-16
About talents not being spiritual gifts: "Those are gifts to the world, but not spiritual gifts."
Basic function and purpose of the Spiritual Gift: That we be grounded, to stand firm as the body.
     Equip for the ministry
     Unity of faith
     Edify the body
"The Lord doesn't give you just one spiritual gift, He'll give you a combo pack."

Three Questions to Ask Yourself
What does the Lord burden your heart for?
What do you do well?
What do people encourage you in?

Romans 12:9
Love: A gift without love is not worth giving.

About the gifts...
Apostles laid the foundation of the Church.
     Had all of the spiritual gifts.
     They are not currently active, but they are recorded in scripture.
Prophets spoke as from God.
Pastors all elders must be pastors, all pastors need not be elders.
Exhortation: Good? Keep it up! Bad? Stop it! Then provide alternatives.
Wisdom - See James 3:17
     No double-speech
     They practice what they preach and provide guidance.
Knowledge - They can explain deep passages of scripture.
