Sunday, September 19, 2021. 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 | "Concerning Spiritual Gifts." 1 Corinthians is not written to a people in the flesh but to the Church in the Spirit. Therefore, the apostle turns his instruction in this twelfth chapter to spiritual things and the person and work of the Holy Spirit. He teaches that the Holy Spirit will never deceive us, divide us, or deprive us of what we need. Instead, God appoints various gifts, services, and activities to each of us according to His gracious will for us in Christ Jesus. This message preaches from 1 Corinthians 12:1-11. It is part of a preaching series through 1 Corinthians "To The Church." The title of this sermon is "Concerning Spiritual Gifts."

How does the Spirit's power become active and stay active in us? Since the gifts of the spirit are initiated and sustained by faith then believers must think differently about the purchasing power of their devotional efforts. Fallen Condition Focus: It is easy to think that salvation is by faith but the operations of the spirit are contingent upon devout effort. Is that true? Are the gifts freely given or are recieved because of devout effort? It can be both-and.

However, Peter isn’t fearmongering or calling us to a kind of doomsday mentality that is so common these days. Rather, Peter calls us to reorient our focus Godward and to recommit ourselves to earnestly loving one another.
