Part 5: The Body Ministry
1 Corinthians 12:4-11
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.
CG Discussion Points
- What are the 4 kinds of faith in a believer’s life? What are the hindrances to general faith? How can we develop from little faith to strong faith? (Rom 10:17; Rom 12:3; Mat 13:57-58; Mat 14:31)
- Discuss how the gift of faith is different from general faith, especially with reference to facts, unbelief, circumstances, and consequences? Illustrate how the gift of faith operate together with the power gifts of healing and works of miracles in the Bible passage examples.
(1 Cor 12:4-11; Luke 7:12-15; Acts 3:1-9)
- Discuss how a person with the gift of faith can help or how you can help the pastor or leader who has the gift of faith to grow the church?
