Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninformed.

1 Corinthians 12:1-3
1
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:
2
You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led.
3
Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.
  1. What did Paul not want us to be uninformed about?
    1 Corinthians 12:1

1 Corinthians Chapter 12:4-11

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11
4
There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5
There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.
6
And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.
7
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:
8
for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,
9
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,
10
to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
11
But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

1 Corinthians Chapter 12:12-13

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:12-13
12
For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.
13
For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body; whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.
  1. What does Paul compare the church with?
    1 Corinthians 12:12
    For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.
  2. What were we all baptized into by the Holy Spirit?
    1 Corinthians 12:13
    For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body; whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.

1 Corinthians Chapter 12:14-19

But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose.

1 Corinthians 12:14-19
14
For in fact the body is not one member but many.
15
If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?
16
And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?
17
If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?
18
But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.
19
And if they were all one member, where would the body be?
  1. What does Paul say that the body consists of?
    1 Corinthians 12:14
    For in fact the body is not one member but many.
  2. Why can no member say that it does not need any other member?
    1 Corinthians 12:15-17
    15
    If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?
    16
    And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?
    17
    If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?
  3. How has God arranged the members in the body?
    1 Corinthians 12:18
    But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.
  4. Why is this necessary?
    1 Corinthians 12:19
    And if they were all one member, where would the body be?

1 Corinthians Chapter 12:20-26

As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.”

1 Corinthians 12:20-26
20
But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.
21
And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."
22
No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary.
23
And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty,
24
but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it,
25
that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another.
26
And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.
  1. Although there are many members, how many bodies of Christ are there?
    1 Corinthians 12:20
    But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.
  2. What can the members not say?
    1 Corinthians 12:21
    And the eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you"; nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."
  3. What members are indispensable?
    1 Corinthians 12:22
    No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary.
  4. Who are we give more honor to?
    1 Corinthians 12:23
    And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty,
  5. Why has God arranged the church this way?
    1 Corinthians 12:24-25
    24
    but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it,
    25
    that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another.
  6. What do the members do when one suffers or is honored?
    1 Corinthians 12:26
    And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.

1 Corinthians Chapter 12:27-31

And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues.

27
Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
28
And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.
29
Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles?
30
Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?
31
But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.
  1. How are we members of the body of Christ ?
    1 Corinthians 12:27
    Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
  2. In what order has God appointed gifts in the church?
    1 Corinthians 12:28
