Common Good (1 Corinthians 12:4-11)

We confess One God IN three persons. Wonderfully, those persons are always deferring to each other – ever exemplifying selflessness. The World, the Flesh, and the Devil despise this kind of unity. Satan has always pushed for selfishness, from the garden to the betrayal of Judas. The World pushes for unity without diversity. A global conformity. The flesh is desperate for those who would unite with it (see ) in debauchery, but ever selfish in all it touches. If we hear Paul correctly in these verses we see that when we use God’s gifts to build up Christ’s Bride the goodness of the Triune God shines!

1 Corinthians 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. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.
