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.

    We are reminded of the diversity of gifts and roles. We should covet earnestly the best gifts through supplication to God.

    If a brother or sister in Christ is suffer spiritual battle and is in trouble, we must help or we will suffer too. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. It's better to rejoice then suffer. Amen

    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.
