Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 12:9


12:9 Faith may here mean an extraordinary trust in God under the most difficult or dangerous circumstances. The gift of healing need not be wholly confined to the healing diseases with a word or a touch. It may exert itself also, though in a lower degree, where natural remedies are applied; and it may often be this, not superior skill, which makes some physicians more successful than others. And thus it may be with regard to other gifts likewise. As, after the golden shields were lost, the king of Judah put brazen in their place, so, after the pure gifts were lost, the power of God exerts itself in a more covert manner, under human studies and helps; and that the more plentifully, according as there is the more room given for it.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 12:9


1Co 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit. Not that faith which "comes by hearing" (Ro 10:17), but that faith which carried miraculous power. See 1Co 13:2 Mt 17:20.
