Gifts Are For The Body

Gifts Are For The Body

Now about spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I tell you that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.   1 Corinthians 12:1-8

Since you are so eager to have the special abilities the Spirit gives, seek those that will strengthen the whole church.   1 Corinthians 14:12

A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.   1 Corinthians 12:7

Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. 15 If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything? 18 But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. 19 How strange a body would be if it had only one part! 20 Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. 21 The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you.”   1 Corinthians 12:14-21

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.   1 Corinthians 12:4

Let love be your highest goal! But you should also desire the special abilities the Spirit gives—especially the ability to prophesy.   1 Corinthians 14:1
