From your results take time to separate MOTIVATIONAL from MANIFESTATIONAL giftings. For this teaching material we are more interested in the MOTIVATIONAL giftings.
(2) Your Main Gifts.
What are your main two or three MOTIVATIONAL giftings ? (note: in this test it also states the Ministerial Gifts - if you score high in these (Apostle, Prophet, Teacher, Evangelist or Pastor) it may not mean you are the OFFICE but have this gifting as a MOTIVATION that may lead to the OFFICE (Full-time calling)).
Please note that various gifts were left out in the test which may be one of your main ones (such as MIRACLES and HEALINGS - you will find it very obvious if you have a ministry in either of these areas because of the dramatic results seen).
(3) Relating Gifts To Calling.
Start to relate these
main motivational gifting to what you believe your calling to be. You will
find God has equipped you with gifts that match His calling on your life....
For example: If God is calling you to train up believers in His word in a specific area the main gifting needed would be 'Teacher' , this is the most effective gift for this task.
