As a kid I used to dream about having super-human powers. I wanted to be Superman so badly. How awesome would it be to have those powers and to be able to kick the tail of all the bad guys? Those are fond memories, but they are just that. Let’s face it, we are just limited normal humans. And yet, Jesus told His followers that they wouldn’t be “normal” anymore. He said in Acts 1:8: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
In truth, if you are a follower of Jesus, you have been given some type of super power to help you represent Christ in this world. Sadly, most Christians have no idea of what this power might be.
This past weekend we talked about what these powers or “gifts” look like for the believer. They are a gift from God by the Holy Spirit, and each of us have at least one. The real challenge is to discover it and to learn to use it for God.
If you missed this past weekend’s message, you can watch it here.
To help you discover your spiritual powers or gifts, I have included links to some free online tests that you can take to help you discover your gift(s.) Please note, this is not a conclusive way to find out what they are, but rather a guide to help you focus on what they might be. I truly believe that your gift(s) are connected to your purpose on this earth.
So begin the discussion, start to serve others and pray that God would show you your Super Powers!!
