Within the context of all we are doing we pursue love.

We desire spiritual gifts.

These are for service of others.

Paul lists them in 1 Corinthians 12:4 – 11

There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:

  • for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit,
  • to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,
  • to another faith by the same Spirit,
  • to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,
  • to another the working of miracles,
  • to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits,
  • to another different kinds of tongues,
  • to another the interpretation of tongues.
But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.
