  •  What is the purpose of the spiritual gifts?
    • The purpose of the gifts is to glorify God and to edify the church.
 
  •  What is the difference between a talent and a spiritual gift?
    • A natural gift is given to every human being at the time of birth, and a spiritual gift is given by the Holy Spirit at the point of salvation.
    • A talent can be possessed by anyone, Christian or non-Christian, but spiritual gifts are only possessed by Christians.
    • The focus of talents and spiritual gifts is for God’s glory and to minister to others, but talents can also be used entirely for non-spiritual purposes.
