IF quotes are from Amy Carmichael, who was a Protestant Christian missionary that served in India for 55 years without furlough and wrote many books about the missionary work there.
In 1 Peter 4:10 Peter says, "As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God." It's clear, every Christian has received a spiritual gift from the Holy Spirit, 1 Corinthians 12:4,11. The study of spiritual gifts is another valuable study, but one thing is clear, discipleship is not one of those gifts.
Every Christian is meant to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus. And every Christian has been gifted by the Holy Spirit. But the two, discipleship and gifts, are different things. Discipleship is a "calling" from Christ just as Peter, Andrew, James and John were called to follow Him. God calls all of His followers to be disciples. But God also gives all His disciples spiritual gifts to use in their respective ministries.
Two important things here: First, don't think of being a disciple is a "gift" given to a select number of believers. Every believer has been called to be a disciple.
Second, every disciple has a spiritual gift(s) to use for the Lord. Therefore, each disciple should get to know what gift(s) they have and learn how to use them as they live the life of a disciple. I use (s) after gift because most Christians will find that they have been gifted in several ways with one particular gift as their dominant gift. I know my dominant gift is exhortation, which speaks of being an encourager. My other gifts are preaching, studying, and teaching.
I want every Christian to know that they don't have to "wait" for a special gifting from the Holy Spirit to be a disciple. Each Christian is called to follow Christ using the gifts they have been given.
