A Spiritual Gift Test by AssessME.org
The Old and New Testaments Teach Three Forms of Giftedness:
OLD TESTAMENT SKILLS
In the Old Testament, God states that He instills our skills within us (See Exodus 31:3). For this reason, AssessME.org includes the Old Testament skill-gifts of Creativity and of Music/Worship. Why? Because these skill-gifts are taken from roles God ordained for Temple Gatekeepers (See 1 Chronicles 23:5) and Craftsmen. In addition, AssessME.org also provides for organic Skills tracking.
NEW TESTAMENT PRACTICAL GIFTS
The Practical Gifts comprise the majority of the gifts listed within the New Testament. However, many Christians are unaware that these gifts are personality-dependent. Accordingly, how a gift is applied will depend upon the personality God gives each person. Therefore, the practical gifts, along with the two Old Testament skill-gifts, comprise our default spiritual gift list. Now, when we filter these gifts through personality, the results are what we call “Gift Expressions“. To this end, AssessME.org tracks each person’s practical gifts, as well as their related Gift Expressions. By default, only the practical gifts are listed within the GraceGifts spiritual gift assessment. See New Testament Revelatory Gifts for the optional gift categories that may be activated if so desired.
NEW TESTAMENT REVELATORY GIFTS
Revelatory gifts are sometimes referred to a “self-evident” gifts. We believe Revelatory gifts are works of grace which the Holy Spirit reveals through us. However, these gifts are not impacted by our personalities. So, for example, the Holy Spirit may inspire someone to pray over a sick person resulting in her healing. In this way, God “revealed” this gift of grace through the one who prayed. But, the personality of the one who prayed was not a factor in how the healing took place. Additionally, the Holy Spirit may never again use this person’s prayers to heal others. The Revelatory Gifts are marked below with an asterisk. These gifts may be activated within our GraceGifts spiritual gifts test, at no additional cost.
We consider the following gifts to fit within the Revelatory Gift category and so they are not included by default within the GraceGifts assessment unless the “Extended List” is activated within your ministry account:
- Interpretation of Tongues
- Prophecy (i.e., foretelling the future)
- Speaking in Tongues
The GraceGifts Spiritual Gifts Test by AssessME.org, is one of the most advanced tests of its kind, and one of the most accurate. We encourage you to sign-up for an Individual Account to take the assessments for yourself, or for a Ministry Account if you wish to track your congregation’s spiritual gift results within a secure database.
