Gifts vs. Calling

Gifts and callings, Amayzing Graces, Karen May

 

“Your gift will open doors for you, but your calling will help you open doors for others.” Rev. Tejado Hanchell

We are given so many gifts. It can take us a while to discover what they are, and even if we do know, it can be hard to know what to do with them. We may have a clear idea, and may even be using them well in our lives.

No matter where we are in our understanding of our gifts, the real thing is to see what God wants us to do with the gifts we have been given. The difference is enormous when we use them within God’s calling for us. It is only then that they are completely fulfilled. I can tell you from experience that there is nothing like God using your gifts for His purposes. Nothing. Not only do you get to see God’s work in your life, but you are given a ringside seat to His work in others’. It’s pretty incredible.
