1 CORINTHIANS 12

For CONTEXT read Gill’s Exposition INTRODUCTION TO 1 Corinthians 12

In a world that clearly tells us to focus on ourselves and the rest of the world be damned; I really like the following quote:

Spiritual gifts are not a limited and defined group of activities spelled out in the New Testament. Rather, spiritual gifts are any ability the Spirit gives you to express your faith in order to strengthen another person.

John Piper

Here in 1 Corinthians 12 Paul to makes an appeal to understand that these “gifts” are not for self-serving purposes but to be used for the good of everyone (v.7). It is all about God and His plan, His glory, and never about us.
