How has God shaped you? Using the SHAPE assessments, you can learn about your unique shape and God's purpose for your gifts and talents.
Psalm 139:14-16 tell us: "I thank you because I am awesomely made, wonderfully; it is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous...you were there while I was being formed...you saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe."
SHAPE is an acronym standing for:
Spiritual Gifts - God-given gifts of a believer
Heart - Passions that energize and motivate
Abilities - Talents and knowledge that equip
Personality - How you relate to others, view the world
Experience - Wisdom gained, what you have seen, learned
Your special SHAPE helps to determine where you will be most fruitful in serving God's kingdom. When you are operating within your God-given gifts and passions, you will be most:
- Faithful to God's design and plan for your life
- Fruitful in your work
- Joyful and energized in what you do
Knowing your Gifts and Passions is an important step to understanding God's will for your life and your service. Applying these Gifts and Passions is where others become blessed, and where you can benefit from the joy of being in the center of God's will, enjoying your God-given purpose.
