The Reason for Spiritual Gifts

I Corinthians 12:4-7

The Holy Spirit distributes gifts according to his sovereign purposes. He does not do so to create disunity in the church, nor does he do it to indicate who is “super spiritual” as opposed to the other “also rans”. Instead, as we will see, the Holy Spirit has given gifts in order to accomplish something breathtaking. He was interested in showing people the actual person and work of Jesus here on earth. Today, we will find out how this is accomplished.
