Diversity of Spiritual Gifts

Now concerning what comes from the Spirit:[fn] brothers, I do not want you to be unaware.

You know that when you were pagans, you used to be led off to the idols that could not speak.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:3

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:3

Therefore I am informing you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:4

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:4

Now there are different gifts, but the same Spirit.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:5

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:5

There are different ministries, but the same Lord.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:6

And there are different activities, but the same God activates each gift in each person.[fn]

Tools specific to 1Co 12:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:7

A demonstration of the Spirit is given to each person to produce what is beneficial:

Tools specific to 1Co 12:8

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:8

to one is given a message of wisdom

through the Spirit,

to another, a message of knowledge

by the same Spirit,

Tools specific to 1Co 12:9

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:9

to another, faith by the same Spirit,

to another, gifts of healing by the one Spirit,

Tools specific to 1Co 12:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:10

to another, the performing of miracles,

to another, prophecy,

to another, distinguishing between spirits,

to another, different kinds of languages,

to another, interpretation of languages.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:11

But one and the same Spirit is active in all these, distributing to each person as He wills.

  
Unity Yet Diversity in the Body

Tools specific to 1Co 12:12

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:12

For as the body is one and has many parts, and all the parts of that body, though many, are one body — so also is Christ.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:13

For we were all baptized by[fn] one Spirit into one body — whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free — and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:14

So the body is not one part but many.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:15

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:15

If the foot should say, “Because I’m not a hand, I don’t belong to the body,” in spite of this it still belongs to the body.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:16

And if the ear should say, “Because I’m not an eye, I don’t belong to the body,” in spite of this it still belongs to the body.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:17

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:17

If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:18

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:18

But now God has placed each one of the parts in one body just as He wanted.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:19

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:19

And if they were all the same part, where would the body be?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:20

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:20

Now there are many parts, yet one body.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:21

So the eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you! ” Or again, the head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you! ”

Tools specific to 1Co 12:22

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:22

But even more, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are necessary.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:23

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:23

And those parts of the body that we think to be less honorable, we clothe these with greater honor, and our unpresentable parts have a better presentation.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:24

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:24

But our presentable parts have no need of clothing. Instead, God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the less honorable,

Tools specific to 1Co 12:25

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:25

so that there would be no division in the body, but that the members would have the same concern for each other.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:26

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:26

So if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:27

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:27

Now you are the body of Christ, and individual members of it.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:28

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:28

And God has placed these in the church:

first apostles, second prophets,

third teachers, next miracles,

then gifts of healing, helping,

managing, various kinds of languages.

Tools specific to 1Co 12:29

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:29

Are all apostles? Are all prophets?

Are all teachers? Do all do miracles?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:30

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:30

Do all have gifts of healing?

Do all speak in other languages?

Do all interpret?

Tools specific to 1Co 12:31

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 12:31

But desire the greater gifts. And I will show you an even better way.
