1 Corinthians 12 The Unity of the gifts

The body is a unity and each gift is needed. The gifts are grace gifts (Charismata). They function on the basis of grace. The gifts are like various body parts needed to function so that the whole body can function. The gifts are naturally supernatural. You know that you have particular gifts in that you are passionate for a particular area and your ministry is acknowledged and received by others. It bears fruit and we grow in our gifts. Different gifts and ministries can also come in various seasons of life, so always be open to what God can do. We are to earnestly seek the greater gifts, which are gifts that contribute to the life of the church. The challenge in our modern age is to serve the Lord.
