People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 12:6


1Co 12:6 Diversities of operations. The inward workings of the Spirit are not always the same, but it is God, one God, "the same God", who causes them all. The object of this section is to show that one divine source accounts for spiritual gifts diverse in their manifestations.

    Verse 28: God has assigned various ministries and everyone has different gifts to offer.
  • Bro Okechukwu WORI
    In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, even now and for ever more. Amen. I chose verses 27 and 28 of 1 Corinthians Chapter 12. My understanding of these verses indicates that we can first accomplish our individual divine assignment if we unify together with love and faith. Also by coming together under a unified nut, we bring our diversified gifts, and talents to enhance the smooth fulfillment.
  • Jacob Ameh Sani
    "...a more excellent way" is love. Love typically is burdens bearing that reliefs others of their challenges. Burdens bearing is living a life that comforts and inspires others. Being the hands of Jesus Christ to your world is one of the pointers to living inspiring and comforting life. The hallmark of Christianity is the more "excellent way". What speed do you tread the more excellent way daily?

    Stephen, speaking in diverse languages and interpretation of diverse languages is listed last. Also, matt. 6:33 states but seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Being in the kingdom and His righteousness, the Lord will supply all our needs.
