The Use of Spiritual Gifts

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:1 - Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be unaware
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:2 - You know that when you were [fn]pagans, you were led [fn]astray to the mute idols, however you were led
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:3 - Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking [fn]by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is [fn]accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except [fn]by the Holy Spirit
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:4 - Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:5 - And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:6 - There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:7 - But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:8 - For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:9 - to another faith [fn]by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of [fn]healing [fn]by the one Spirit
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:10 - and to another the [fn]effecting of [fn]miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the [fn]distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:11 - But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He [fn]wills
(cf. Eph 4:1–16 )
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:12 - For just as the body is one and yet has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:13 - For [fn]by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:14 - For the body is not one part, but many
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:15 - If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason [fn]any less a part of the body
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:16 - And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason [fn]any less a part of the body
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:17 - If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole body were hearing, where would the sense of smell be?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:18 - But now God has arranged the parts, each one of them in the body, just as He desired
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:19 - If they were all one part, where would the body be?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:20 - But now there are many parts, but one body
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:21 - And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again, the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.”
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:22 - On the contrary, [fn]it is much truer that the parts of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:23 - and those parts of the body which we [fn]consider less honorable, [fn]on these we bestow greater honor, and our less presentable parts become much more presentable
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:24 - whereas our more presentable parts have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that part which lacked
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:25 - so that there may be no [fn]division in the body, but that the parts may have the same care for one another
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:26 - And if one part of the body suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if a part is [fn]honored, all the parts rejoice with it.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:27 - Now you are Christ’s body, and individually parts of it.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:28 - And God has [fn]appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then [fn]miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, and various kinds of tongues
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:29 - All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of [fn]miracles, are they?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:30 - All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 12:31 - But earnestly desire the greater gifts.
And yet, I am going to show you a far better way
