Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit. On the other hand, the one who prophesies speaks to people…
For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit. Or as I frequently paraphrase this passage, Jews or Greeks, inmates or volunteers. I wonder what Paul would have to say about today's proliferation of denominations?…
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. Isn't this precious? We are one body with Christ. All who name Jesus the Christ as Lord and Savior and who believe…
All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills. It is so easy for me to look in envy at the ministries of various brothers. They are doing great and marvelous works within the Body of Christ. Some things with…
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans you were led astray to mute idols, however, you were led. Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking in the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus is…
I rise before dawn and cry for help; I hope in your words. We are now at that time of year where rising before dawn is getting easier and easier. This is a time without distractions from the outside, there is nothing that can be seen, and all is quiet…
For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, Has anyone had the experience of dealing with someone who has a considerable fund of knowledge, knows everything but cannot apply it to life? Contrast that…
To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. "The manifestation of the Spirit for the common good," not my good. To the extent and in the fashion that the Spirit is manifested in me, it is for the good of the Body. It is not…
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; Just as Galatians 5:22-23 list the flavors of the fruit of the Spirit, the following verses list the gifts of the Spirit. But the difference is that the flavors of the fruit of the Spirit are nuances of the same…
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans you were led astray to mute idols, however, you were led. Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking in the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus is…
Yet in my judgment, she is happier if she remains as she is. And I think that I too have the Spirit of God. This would have been an excellent opportunity for Paul to exercise his apostolic authority, but he restrained. The quiet lesson to me is to be very,…
But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the…
Before I was afflicted, I went astray, but now I keep Your word. You are good and do good; teach me Your statutes. Lord, it is so good to live in the light of Your word, to know that You are with me, guiding me by revealing Your word and…
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And…
Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? God's temple is to be a holy place, pure and sanctified to Him, but I, as His temple, need cleansing and purification. The story of King Josiah (2 Kings 22:17ff) comes to mind as…
