Christian Coaching: Helping Others Turn Potential into Reality
The book also shows how to evaluate the spiritual gifts and their purposes. Collins encourages prayer for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. These spiritual gifts involve administration, faith, hospitality, mercy and evangelism among others. The first approach on how to evaluate the spiritual gift is the inventory approach (Collins, 2009). It involves taking single standardized spiritual gift inventory, which are present in Christian Bookstores. The other method is the checklist approach. This involves making three copies of the spiritual gift list. A person should go through the list, and check on the words that best describe them.
Dr. Collins demonstrates how to clarify the mission statement. He says that one has to pray on the calling and mission. You should ask God on His objective to your life. He lists various examples of times in life when you realized that you were on purpose. After that, you should look on the themes that you have listed and compare the statement. Finally, an individual is expected to list his basics of key values, passion, strength, personal behaviors, worldview and spiritual gifts
