Everybody Can Discover Purpose

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10


We are created in the image of God with and for a purpose. Your natural passions are part of you for a reason, and God’s design is for you to use them! Discovering your purpose isn’t just what you do for work or as a hobby, it’s how you grow God’s Kingdom. It can be your natural ability or desire to build or create, talk to people, or sense someone else’s emotions. Each gift you have is used as an opportunity to share the love of Jesus or pour into the lives of those around you.

Each gift you have—we’ll call them spiritual gifts from here—is given to you uniquely. You’ll have different or similar gifts to those around you, but your gifts are always complementary to God’s plan. 1 Corinthians 12: 4-6 tell us more about our gifts and how they’re used:

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.  There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
– 1 Corinthians 12: 4-6

It may only take a few moments of reflection to uncover what your spiritual gifts are—maybe you already use them in your daily life or people often compliment your gift! Whatever your gifts are, our hope at 12Stone is that you find a place to unlock and use your gifts at church as a volunteer and everywhere you go.

Whether you’re interested in learning about your spiritual gifts or using your gifts as a volunteer, we believe Growth Track is the place where you discover your gifts to become the hands and feet of the Church! Discover Purpose is the way to pour into the lives of those around to make their day better!

Spend time answering these questions today. Write your responses in a journal or talk through them with someone your trust!

  1. What do you think is your purpose on earth?
  2. What are the things you’re naturally good at? What are the things you enjoy doing?
  3. How can you use your gifts to make a difference in the lives of those around you?
