Spiritual Gifts Analysis
Every Christian is given spiritual gifts to be used in ministry. If you have committed your life to Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit has “gifted” you. Specifically, the Bible says that your spiritual gifts are supposed to be used to build up the church. When we use our gifts together, the church grows and we all benefit. It’s important for Christ-followers to discover what their spiritual gifts are so they can use them in ministry.
The Basden-Johnson Spiritual Gifts Analysis consists of 110 questions and should take 10-15 minutes to complete.
Three specific lists of spiritual gifts occur in the New Testament, all in Paul’s letters:
Romans 12:3-8 names 7 gifts: prophecy, serving, teaching, exhortation, giving, leadership and mercy.
1 Corinthians 12:7-11, 27-30 lists 13 gifts: wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment, speaking in tongues, interpreting tongues, apostleship, teaching, healing and administration.
Ephesians 4:11 has 5 gifts: apostleship, prophecy, evangelism, shepherding and teaching.
Four other possible references to spiritual gifts are cited in other passages:
1 Corinthians 7:7 (2 new gifts)—marriage and celibacy
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 (2 new gifts)—voluntary poverty and martyrdom
1 Corinthians 14:26-33 (1 new gift)—music
1 Peter 4:9-11 (1 new gift)—hospitality
Four principles underlie the biblical teaching on spiritual gifts and provide guidance for studying and using gifts to serve God and others.
Universality - Every believer has at least one spiritual gift. No one is the exception. (1 Cor. 12:7, 11; Eph. 4:7)
Humility - No believer has every spiritual gift. No Christian is “omni-gifted.” (1 Cor. 12:12, 27, 29-30)
Diversity - Believers have different spiritual gifts from one another. We are all unique. (Rom. 12:3-6a)
Sovereignty - Believers receive spiritual gifts according to the sovereign will of Christ’s Spirit. God distributes gifts according to His wisdom. (1 Cor. 12:11; Eph. 4:7-8)
