EVERYONE IS GIFTED for special ministries. Although some people say they aren’t, they may be thinking about talents or natural abilities. Some even excuse themselves from serving in the church because they claim the absence of usuable talents and skills. But the biblical truth is that all Christians have spiritual gifts that carry extraordinary powers and responsibilities.

So we are always confident; even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord — for we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:6-7, NRSV
