1 Corinthians 12:1-3 “Spiritual Gifts” part 1

My sermon notes for Sunday morning, July 24th.  Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon. They are provided as an outline each week for our Tabernacle Church family. The church provides a live stream of the service each Sunday at 10:30 on Facebook. We also provide the services through YouTube by Sunday afternoon.  You can find Sermon Notes, Family Devotional Guides, Prayer List, and other resources at our Church Website.

1 Corinthians 12:1–3


No one can doubt that God is still in the MIRACLE business.  The question for us today is what role the Miraculous Gifts have in the church today.

Two major schools of thought in regard to the miraculous gifts in the church today.

Continuationism (Pentecostal/Charismatic)


As with most things:

Where I have problems within the continuationism movement:

Today is an introductory sermon as we consider the next several passages.  We will utilize these 3 verses to lay a foundation for us to build upon.

Believers can be saved yet live unwisely

Believers need to consider what they believe

I do not want you to be uniformed

We are indwelt with the Spirit at conversion

We are filled with the Spirit as we mature in our spiritual life

Believers should pursue truth

When you were pagans

Led astray

Test the Spirits

One of the issues I see today is “self-authenticating”

The Truth is crucial


Apart from the Spirts work… We are dead in our trespasses and sin. People do what they do because of who they are and who they follow. It is only by the Spirit of God that our minds and hearts are transformed.
