1 Corinthians 12:1-31, NLT
1 Corinthians 12
1Now, dear brothers and sisters,*12:1 Greek brothers. regarding your question about the special abilities the Spirit gives us. I don’t want you to misunderstand this.
4There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.
7A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.
One Body with Many Parts
12The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ.
14Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part.
18But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it.
22In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary.
27All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.
first are apostles,
second are prophets,
third are teachers,
then those who do miracles,
those who have the gift of healing,
those who can help others,
those who have the gift of leadership,
those who speak in unknown languages.
29Are we all apostles? Are we all prophets? Are we all teachers? Do we all have the power to do miracles?
But now let me show you a way of life that is best of all.
