  • Scripture Reading1 Corinthians 12:4-20

    Page 1153.Reader: Peter MacIntosh

  • 1 Corinthians 12:4-20 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.

  • 1 Corinthians 12:4-20 8 To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits,

  • 1 Corinthians 12:4-20 to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines. One Body, Many Parts12 The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.

  • 1 Corinthians 12:4-20 13 For we were all baptised by one Spirit into one body whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15 If the foot should say, Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body, it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body.

  • 1 Corinthians 12:4-20 16 And if the ear should say, Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body, it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?

  • 1 Corinthians 12:4-20 18 But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. _____________

  • Psalm 68:18-20 (p. 303) 18Thou hast, O Lord, most glorious,ascended up on high;And in triumph victorious ledcaptive captivity:

  • Psalm 68:18-20 (2/4) Thou hast receivd gifts for men,for such as did rebel;Yea, evn for them, that God the LORDin midst of them might dwell.

  • Psalm 68:18-20 (3/4) 19Blessd be the Lord, who is to usof our salvation God;Who daily with his benefitsus plenteously doth load.

  • Psalm 68:18-20 (4/4) 20He of salvation is the God,who is our God most strong;And unto GOD the Lord from deaththe issues do belong.


    1 Corinthians 12:4-20

    (p. 1153)

  • 1 THE GOAL OF SPIRITUAL GIFTSGifts for Service and for Growth! Gifts that focus on the TRINITY!Gifts that emphasise VARIETY.All together: Gifts that promote UNITY and Humility.

  • 2 THE LOGIC BEHIND SPIRITUAL FELLOWSHIPWe are a BODY in Christ. A BODY with many parts (12)A BODY with no unessential parts.(Can you grow, outside the body?) A BODY where the DIFFERENCES between us are good! (Are all apostles?)

  • SO SERVE THE BODYGive thanks for the gifts that God has given to this congregation.Be ready to humbly serve Christ, as we serve one another.

  • Psalm 113:1-9* (p. 151)1O praise, you servants of the LORD;Sing praises to his holy name.2O blessd be the name of God;His praise for evermore proclaim.3From east to west the praise of GodEach day is to be spread abroad.

  • Psalm 113:1-9* (2/3)4The LORD is high above the earth,His glory far above the sky.5Who else is like the LORD our God, The one who sits enthroned on high?6He is the one who stoops down lowTo look on heavn and earth below.

  • Psalm 113:1-9* (3/3)7He raises outcasts from the dustAnd from the ash-heap lifts the poor,8Exalting them to dignity,With noblemen to sit secure.9The childless woman hell rewardWith home and children. Praise the LORD!
