~ The Use of Spiritual Gifts

1Co 12:1  Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you [to be] ignorant.

1Co 12:2  Ye know that ye were Gentiles [pagans], carried away unto these dumb [mute] idols, even as ye were led [astray].

1Co 12:3  Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man [who is] speaking by the Spirit of God calleth [says] Jesus [be] accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but [except] by the Holy Ghost.

1Co 12:4  Now there are diversities [different kinds] of gifts, but the same Spirit.

1Co 12:5  And there are differences of administrations [service], but the same Lord.

1Co 12:6  And there are diversities [different kinds] of operations [working], but it is the same God which worketh all [of them] in all [men].

1Co 12:7  But the manifestation of the Spirit is given [for the common good] to every man to profit withal.

1Co 12:8  For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

1Co 12:9  To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

1Co 12:10  To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers [speaking in different] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

1Co 12:11  But all these worketh [are the work of] that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing [gives them] to every man severally as he will [as he determines].

~ One Body, Many Parts

1Co 12:12  For as the body is one, and [but] hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are [they form] one body: so also [it] is [with] Christ.

1Co 12:13  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles [Greeks], whether we be bond [slave] or free; and [we] have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

1Co 12:14  For the body is not one member, but many.

1Co 12:15  If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1Co 12:16  And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1Co 12:17  If the whole body were an eye, where were [would] the [sense of] hearing [be]?  If the whole [body] were hearing [an ear], where were [would] the [sense of] smelling [be]?

1Co 12:18  But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

1Co 12:19  And if they were all one member, where were [would] the body [be]?

1Co 12:20  But now are they many members, yet but one body.

1Co 12:21  And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

1Co 12:22  Nay [on the contrary], much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary [much more]:

1Co 12:23  And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant [special] honour; and our uncomely [unpresentable] parts have more abundant [special] comeliness [modesty].

1Co 12:24  For our comely [presentable] parts have no need [for special treatment]: but God hath tempered [combined the members of] the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked [honor].

1Co 12:25  That there should be no schism [division] in the body; but that the members should have the same care [concern] one for another.

1Co 12:26  And whether [if] one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or [if] one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

1Co 12:27  Now ye are [collectively] the body of Christ [Christ's congregation ], and members in particular.

1Co 12:28  And God hath set some [appointed] in the church [ congregation ], first [of all] apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that [workers of] miracles, then gifts of healings, helps [help others], governments [administration], diversities [speaking in different kinds] of tongues.

1Co 12:29  Are all apostles?  are all prophets?  are all teachers?  are all workers of miracles?

1Co 12:30  Have all the gifts of healing?  do all speak with tongues?  do all interpret?

1Co 12:31  But covet [desire] earnestly the best gifts:

[ ~ Love (Charity, Agape) ]

and yet [now] shew I unto you a more excellent way [in the next chapter].
