DEVOTION: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 English Standard Version (ESV)

Spiritual Gifts

12 Now concerning[a] spiritual gifts,[b] brothers,[c] I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans you were led astray to mute idols, however you were led. Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking in the Spirit of God ever says "Jesus is accursed!" and no one can say "Jesus is Lord" except in the Holy Spirit.

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to 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, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.

Are you in a conflict with a brother, sister, parent, spouse, or friend? Do you want to end that conflict and gain back loved ones and friends?  Do you want to mend fences and rebuild bridges?  Do you want to get rid of all the bitterness, anger, and resentment that you have toward others or that someone might have toward you?  Do you want to do what GOD wants you to do in your broken relationships, but you don't know where or how to start? 


Ambassadors of Reconciliation has some great tools that will help to teach you and guide you through a process of doing just that at https://www.aorhope.org/ .


You can receive access to a free online course called "Conflict Resolution vs. Reconciliation"  at https://www.aorhope.org/aor-gift because I sponsored your scholarship. Simply go to that link to access this on-line course about biblical reconciliation. It is excellent.


I took a challenge to sponsor scholarships for several people at St. John's, because I want as many people as possible to take this course and learn to go and be reconciled to one another!  If you think it is helpful you can take the challenge yourself and nominate others!


Let me know if you take the course, so I can know how many people my donation has helped!
