Paul commanded that we not be ignorant concerning spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12:1). This book is written to introduce biblical information regarding spiritual gifts to the Bible student, and provide a Personal Development Plan (PDP) for assessing the discovery and practice of the spiritual gifts in your special ministry: your unique contribution to the eternal plan of God. Can you imagine anything more strategic with your life?
When we discover how God has made us, we begin to learn how we are expected to serve in the Body of Christ, the church. This is not just for the minister, but for every believer. If we discover how we are equipped by God’s design for ministry, then we can deduce how He want us to serve. This majestic concept is described as the “good works that God prepared before hand…” One version writes, “so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”NLT Begin your adventure of a lifetime.
