Pentecost Sunday 2014 – 1 Corinthians 12:8-12

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

1 Corinthians 12:8-12To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses. For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.

I love this passage because it confirms that each of us is both precious to God and vital to the building of God’s kingdom. Whether you work at the Church Health Center, an insurance agency, a factory, a restaurant – regardless of your actual job description, you are an agent of hope and healing, and you are vital to God’s kingdom.

Loving God, help us to embrace our gifts so that we may be the kingdom-builders you want us to be. Amen.
