Christine chats with author Jared Wilson about what spiritual gifts are, how we should think about them, and why the church is so important in helping us know how we're gifted. Jared shares how we can avoid a self-focus when it comes to how God's created us to serve him and how we can know if we're serving in the Spirit's strength rather than our own.
In addition, Jared and Christine talk about when Jared left the pastorate, how he knew it was time to make a change, and how times of transition can often reveal the idolatry we place in our identity.
