1 Corinthians 12.1-13
This coming Sunday we will be focusing on 1 Corinthians 12.1-13. In this passage the Apostle Paul tells us about spiritual gifts that the Holy Spirit entrusts to us. In verses 4-6 he uses the word varieties three times. We should all recognize that there are varieties of gifts that God entrusts to us. Those gifts are not all the same. But what is similar to all the gifts is found in verse 7 ------ "To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." The gifts are given by God for the common good. The real question for us, as the church, are we using our spiritual gifts for the common good?
