today’s meditation verse:
i corinthians 12:9a
9) to another faith by the same spirit…
we’ve been discussing the gifts of the spirit and this week i’ll be writing about the gift of faith.
in i corinthians 12 paul is teaching the church about the ministerial gifts of the spirit. the ministerial gifts are the gifts of the spirit used for the ‘common good’ as paul states in verse 7.
i corinthians 12:7
but to each one is given the manifestation of the spirit for the common good.
there are gifts of the spirit that are universal and for everyone. faith is one of those as it says in romans 12:3.
for through the grace given to me i say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as god has allotted to each a measure of faith.
