The Work of Love: Spiritual Gifts in the Life of the Church

The Work of Love: Spiritual Gifts in the Life of the Church 1 Cor. 12-14:12 1. The first and most miraculous gift is the sight that sees Jesus. Very often, when we get spiritual gifts wrong we have previously gotten spiritual conversion wrong. 2. Because of the common miracle of our regeneration in the Holy Spirit, our diverse spiritual gifts can reveal our unity. The DNA of the gospel produces spiritual gifts for use in the body. 3. Comparison concerning spiritual gifts cannot work. When comparison flourishes, worldly ways of thinking take over. 4. Spiritual sign gifts are especially vulnerable to being valued in worldly ways. Even as we are being the church, we are building it up during our time here on the earth. Eph. 2:18-22 The gnostic tendency = 5. Love is the main thing, not spiritual sign gifts. The disciplines of love lubricate the use of spiritual sign gifts. 6. Your greatest desire and the Spirit’s greatest display are the same: strengthening the church. In the church, there are no traveling circuses and no second-class citizens.
