Diana Myers: Being Good Stewards of Our Spiritual Gifts

Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been impacted by givers—those who have given your time, talent and treasure to invest in the Kingdom. Over 65 years, countless volunteers and supporters have created a legacy at FCA and trusted this international sports ministry with their God-given resources!

FCA believes that every believer has a calling. And in order to fulfill our calling to the utmost, God has provided each of us with a unique set of spiritual gifts. Knowing and leveraging our spiritual gifts enables us to be more effective members of the body of Christ.

According to 1 Corinthians 12, the Spirit of God, acting in a direct and intentional way, desires to bring fullness and balance to every body of believers. This is His will, and it can only be realized through the sharing of our spiritual gifts with one another. The concept is both profound and exciting.

We are commanded by God to be good stewards of the gifts He has given us. Good stewardship, therefore, compels us to know, understand and utilize our spiritual gifts to better fulfill our calling, and by doing so, bring our unique contribution to the body of Christ.

Serving with our gifts is a powerful form of stewardship. You would think that Christians already know everything there is to know about serving. After all, we are taught from a very early age that serving others is the path to pleasing God. While there is a fair amount of truth in that statement, there is also much confusion as to what actions best constitute Christian service.
