  • Spiritual Gifts Illustrated: the body.1 Corinthians 12:12 The body is a unit, thoughit is made up of many parts; and though all itsparts are many, they form one body. So it iswith Christ.
  • Spiritual Gifts Illustrated: the body.13For we were all baptized by one Spirit intoone body--whether Jews or Greeks, slave orfree--and we were all given the one Spirit todrink. 14Now the body is not made up of onepart but of many.
  • Spiritual Gifts Illustrated: the body.1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body ofChrist, and each one of you is a part of it.
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers1 Corinthians 12:15 If the foot shouldsay, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belongto the body," it would not for that reason ceaseto be part of the body.
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers16And if the ear should say, "Because I am notan eye, I do not belong to the body," it wouldnot for that reason cease to be part of thebody.
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers• Inferiority
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers1 Corinthians 12:17 If the whole body were aneye, where would the sense of hearing be? Ifthe whole body were an ear, where would thesense of smell be?
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers1 Corinthians 12:18 But in fact God hasarranged the parts in the body, every one ofthem, just as he wanted them to be.
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers1 Corinthians 12:19 If they were all onepart, where would the body be? 20As it is, thereare many parts, but one body.
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers• Superiority
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers1 Corinthians 12:21 The eye cannot say to thehand, "I dont need you!" And the head cannotsay to the feet, "I dont need you!"
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers1 Corinthians 12:22 On the contrary, thoseparts of the body that seem to be weaker areindispensable,
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers23and the parts that we think are lesshonorable we treat with special honor. Andthe parts that are unpresentable are treatedwith special modesty,
  • Spiritual Gifts: Dangers1 Corinthians 12:24 ... while our presentableparts need no special treatment. But God hascombined the members of the body and hasgiven greater honor to the parts that lacked it,
  • Spiritual Gifts: Two Huge Outcomes:1 Corinthians 12:25 ... so that there should beno division in the body,
  • Spiritual Gifts: Two Huge Outcomes:• Unity
  • Spiritual Gifts: Two Huge Outcomes:1 Corinthians 12:25 but that its parts shouldhave equal concern for each other. 26If onepart suffers, every part suffers with it; if onepart is honored, every part rejoices with it.
  • Spiritual Gifts: Two Huge Outcomes:• Care
  • Spiritual Gifts: Two Huge Outcomes:1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body ofChrist, and each one of you is a part of it.
  • Spiritual Gifts: Two Huge Outcomes: You are a part and play a part!
  • Spiritual Gifts: Two Huge Outcomes:1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? Are allprophets? Are all teachers? Do all workmiracles? 30Do all have gifts of healing? Doall speak in tongues? Do all interpret?
  • Spiritual Gifts: A Final Perspective.1 Corinthians 12:31 But eagerly desire thegreater gifts. And now I will show you themost excellent way.
  • Spiritual Gifts: A Final Perspective.1 Corinthians 13:1 If I speak in the tongues ofmen and of angels, but have not love, I amonly a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
  • Spiritual Gifts: A Final Perspective.2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathomall mysteries and all knowledge, and if I havea faith that can move mountains, but have notlove, I am nothing.
  • Spiritual Gifts: A Final Perspective.3IfI give all I possess to the poor andsurrender my body to the flames, but have notlove, I gain nothing.
