Minister: Peter Holwell
Theme: Gifts of the Spirit
Scripture reference(s): 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 – New International Version (NIV) “Concerning Spiritual Gifts”
Summary: Peter focuses on the setting of this passage at the Church in Corinth. Much like our modern society the Corinthians were individual centred, not God centred. Peter goes on to discuss how the gifts of wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miraculous powers, prophecy, distinguishing between spirits, speaking in different languages and interpretation of different languages are part of the working of God within us and becomes part of the blend of the body of Christ. The shape of the Church should reflect the way the spirit of God is moving in the congregation. What shape is the body of Christ today in Trinity church?
