Spiritual Gifts
12:1-3 What I want to talk about now is the various ways Godís Spirit gets worked into our lives. This is complex and often misunderstood, but I want you to be informed and knowledgeable. Remember how you were when you didnít know God, led from one phony god to another, never knowing what you were doing, just doing it because everybody else did it? Itís different in this life. God wants us to use our intelligence, to seek to understand as well as we can. For instance, by using your heads, you know perfectly well that the Spirit of God would never prompt anyone to say ďJesus be damned!Ē Nor would anyone be inclined to say ďJesus is Master!Ē without the insight of the Holy Spirit.

12:4-11 Godís various gifts are handed out everywhere; but they all originate in Godís Spirit. Godís various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in Godís Spirit. Godís various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people! The variety is wonderful:

wise counsel
clear understanding
simple trust
healing the sick
miraculous acts
proclamation
distinguishing between spirits
tongues
interpretation of tongues.
All these gifts have a common origin, but are handed out one by one by the one Spirit of God. He decides who gets what, and when.
1 Corinthians 12:1-11The Message (MSG)

"It must be made clear that the church exists for the sake of the world. that the light is shining in the darkness.
Karl Barth
