A major theme of the Apostle Paul's first letter to the congregation in Corinth was on spiritual gifts (or more literally 'spiritual things'), as this seemed to be a primary source of division and discord among the fellowship there. Paul's overall argument includes the well-known argument about Christ's body being made of many parts ("the eye can't say to the hand, 'I have no need for you.'") and the even more famous passage of love as the greatest of spiritual gifts (a passage we know well from weddings!). He begins his discussion of spiritual gifts, however, with the passage we examined in worship yesterday morning: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11. Here is my recap video of that sermon.
