1 Corinthians 12:1-6 NASB
1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware.2 You know that when you were pagans, you were led astray to the mute idols, however you were led. 3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. 6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons.

- Am I more interested in the spiritual gift or the one who gave the gift?
- What does Paul say that the purpose of the gifts are in v. 7?
- How do you use your gifts for the building up of others? The body of Christ?
