What's Your Shape: Abilities (Part Three)


Unlike our spiritual gifts, which are given to us when we become a Christian, our abilities our things that we are born with; the natural talents and gifts that you are uniquely good at. It can be just about anything! Some people are naturally good at sports, others music, others are artistic; the list goes on and on.

Just like every other part of your shape, abilities play a huge role in how you serve the Lord. Remember when Solomon and the Israelite people were building the Tabernacle for the Lord? God provided men who were naturally gifted with "with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts... and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship." Those men had special, unique abilities and God used them for His purposes and glory in making the temple. Many times, people give excuses and say they have nothing to offer, no abilities to contribute for the Lord, which really is just a cop-out. Every living person on this earth has tons of abilities! You just have to figure out what they are. However, on the flip side, unless you use your abilities for the glory of God, they are completely worthless.

1 Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

What we need to do with our abilities is USE them for God! He created you already equipped with the talents you need to carry out God's will. There should be nothing holding us back from faithfully serving the Lord with our abilities.

1 Peter 4:10
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

In His Love,
