At our weekly bible study the subject of spiritual gifts came up and a reference was given to me of 1 Corinthians 12. I am trying to figure out my spiritual gifts and what I can use to glorify God. I use an app on my iPad called Blue Letter Bible . As you can tell by my webpage I enjoy astronomy, amateur radio and more. I felt I needed to somehow have a gift of knowing the scriptures from cover to cover and then I could get involved in my own mission telling people about Jesus. But in reading One Corinthians 12 this morning
1 Corinthians 12:4 (ESV)
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit;
and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord;
and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.
In further studying using the lookup feature of the app for variety I see varieties mean The quality of being different or diverse; the absence of uniformity, sameness or monotony.
I am subject to changing my thoughts but I guess what I am seeing I am using my gifts when I am showing friends the planet Saturn for the first time or the moon, I am using my unique gifts same way a preacher uses his gifts to teach scripture to his flock.
I am still studying so if you wish to send me comments please do so. firstname.lastname@example.org.
