MEMORISE: Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:4

Read: 1 Corinthians 12:4-12

4.Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

5.And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

6.And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

7.But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8.For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9.To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10.To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11.But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

12.For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

In John 10:30, Jesus says, “I and my Father are one”. The concept of Trinity can e analysed using an egg. An egg has three parts; the shell, the egg whit and the yolk.

The three parts make a whole even though they are different. They can also function differently, even though the the egg is a whole. The Trinity is one,even though they can perform different roles.

God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit work together as team players. They were there at the creation when God said, “Let us make man in our image”.

God the Son also took the form of a man and waited on God the Father’s instruction before doing anything on earth ( John 15:9). He also did nothing without the backing of the Holy Spirit.

Unity and team work are hallmarks of humility. You should not find it difficult to work with others.

You should not be scoring the goals, as long as the team wins, it does not matter who scores the goals.

Do you have a goal to achieve? Look for like minds and work with them to achieve the goal.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Daniel 1-2; 1 John 2

Hymn 13

1. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing through you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?

Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.

2. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying
The Savior who does on the cross

3. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it a daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the word of salvation?
To those who are dying in sin?

4. We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.
