“For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us…” (Romans 12:4-6) In plain English this means you belong to me and I belong to you.
Do you know how you can discover your spiritual gift? Let me tell you how. Get in the body of Christ and go to work. It’s hard to steer a ship that’s not moving. How does my hand know it is a hand? It can function in the body. How does my mouth know that my hand is a hand? My hand feeds my mouth.
What I am trying to say is, if God has given you a gift, God will be confirming that gift to someone else and your gift is going to bubble up. It is going to come out as you get into the body and go to work. And you are going to find your brothers and sisters saying, “Would you do this, would you help me here, may I talk to you, may I counsel with you, would you please sing this song for me, would you tell me what this verse of Scripture means?” and on and on. You are going to find your gift coming to the surface. Why? Because we are members one of another.
