Study 9 From The Book of 1 Corinthians Is: 1 Corinthians 12
- List the different kinds of gift and of service which Paul mentions in this chapter. On what principle are they given, and for what purpose? What responsibility does the possession of such a gift put upon the person who has it?
- Consider how the character of the human body illustrates both the unity and the diversity of the Church. What other lessons does the apostle draw from this illustration?
Note. Verse 1-3. The necessary and decisive test of the presence of the Spirit of God in those exercising spiritual gifts is loyalty to Jesus as Lord. Cf. I Jn. 4:1-3.
