chronological day 325 :)

Please read 1 Corinthians 11:2-34, chapters 12 and 13.  Lots of familiar territory today – it’s good to be re-reminded of these truths.  What’s your highlight today?  

“Keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you” 1 Corinthians 11:2

There is a spirit in traditions, follow the principle of it. Sometimes we throw something out just because it’s “traditional” – but traditional isn’t always bad!  (A friend of mine says, “Let’s operate at the minimum with the discernment of a cow: chew the grass, spit out the sticks”)

“God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people!” 1 Corinthians 12:4-10 MSG

Do not be ignorant of spiritual gifts, either your own or the spiritual gifts of others. All come from the Lord, all are valid, and all are valuable. 12:12-19 – realize that there is no room for jealousy in the body of Christ.  Rejoice and operate in the diversity of gifts!  Your gift is necessary to the Body of Christ, one is not more important than another.

“love is the more excellent way” 1 Corinthians 12:31

Of course, the “love chapter”, 1 Corinthians 13…. Always, if you have a choice, choose love. (and of course, you ALWAYS have a choice!)

 

One thought on “chronological day 325 :)

    Today’s theme seemed to focus on the blueprint of the Holy Spirit. Chapter 11 started with,” But there is one thing I want you to know: The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” Let me Lord not forget that we need guidance and reminder. Mrs. Jennifer’s words throughout this year have been “its ok to have repetition it helps us to learn”. So true further in chapter 12 he reminds, “Here are some of the parts God has appointed for the church: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.” I don’t know what I have to offer but GOD will reveal it as he says it. So powerful today!
