  1. We Need to Know the Mind of God • When a man becomes a Christian his life is to be radically changed. (Matt 10:38-39)

  2. We Need to Know the Mind of God • (Matthew 10:38-39 NKJV) “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. {39} “He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.

  3. We Need to Know the Mind of God • It is such a change that he is said to have a new mind. One however that mind must be renewed. (Eph 4:23-24; Phil 2:5)

  4. We Need to Know the Mind of God • (Ephesians 4:23-24 NKJV) and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, {24} and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

  5. We Need to Know the Mind of God • (Philippians 2:5 NKJV) Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,

  6. We Need to Know the Mind of God • When that mind is applied to our lives it changes us from a selfish, self-centered person to a servant. (Mark 10:42-45)

  7. We Need to Know the Mind of God • (Mark 10:42-45 NKJV) But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. {43} “Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant.

  8. We Need to Know the Mind of God • {44} “And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. {45} “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

  9. We Need to Know the Mind of God • In our study we will examine the proper role and use of spiritual gifts.

  10. We Need to Know the Mind of God • In our study we will examine the proper role and use of spiritual gifts. • Paul is continuing to answer a letter the Corinthians had written. (1 Cor 7:1)

  11. We Need to Know the Mind of God • (1 Corinthians 7:1 NKJV) Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

  12. We Need to Know the Mind of God • We are to see how Christians were to view not only spiritual gifts but in principle all gifts.

  13. We Need to Know the Mind of God • We are to see how Christians were to view not only spiritual gifts but in principle all gifts. • The Corinthians had to put on the mind of God and overcome their own immaturity. (1 Cor 3:1-3)

  14. We Need to Know the Mind of God • (1 Corinthians 3:1-3 NKJV) And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. {2} I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; {3} for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?

  15. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • (1 Corinthians 12:1-3 NKJV) Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: {2} You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led. {3} Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

  16. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • The way of the world leads to wherever your desires lead! (1 John 2:15-16)

  17. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • (1 John 2:15-16 NKJV) Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. {16} For all that is in the world; the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life; is not of the Father but is of the world.

  18. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • Being “carried away” is a good description of this slavery! (2 Pet 2:18-19)

  19. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • (2 Peter 2:18-19 NKJV) For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. {19} While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.

  20. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • Statement made about Russia: “They are not used to being governed by laws but by people”. Living by principle is a sign of maturity.

  21. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • Statement made about Russia: “They are not used to being governed by laws but by people”. Living by principle is a sign of maturity. • How does the Holy Spirit bring certainty?

  22. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • Statement made about Russia: “They are not used to being governed by laws but by people”. Living by principle is a sign of maturity. • How does the Holy Spirit bring certainty? • Being from God the message will always be the same! (1 John 4:1-6)

  23. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • 1 John 4:1-6 NKJV) Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. {2} By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,

  24. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • {3} and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. {4} You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

  25. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • {5} They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. {6} We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

  26. The Consistency of the Mind of God verses the Way of Idolatry (VV 1-3) • How can we know when something is from God?

  27. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • (1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NKJV) There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. {5} There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. {6} And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. {7} But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:

  28. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • {8} for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, {9} to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, {10} to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.

  29. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • {11} But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

  33. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • This same unity is an example for us. (Jn 17:20-21; 1 Cor 14:33; Eph 4:4-6)

  34. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • (John 17:20-21 NKJV) “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; {21} “that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

  35. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • (1 Corinthians 14:33 NKJV) For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

  36. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • (Ephesians 4:4-6 NKJV)There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; {5} one Lord, one faith, one baptism; {6} one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

  37. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • What are “spiritual gifts”?

  38. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • What are “spiritual gifts”? • They were given by the laying on of the apostles hands. (Acts 8:18; 2 Tim 1:6)

  39. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • (Acts 8:18 NKJV) And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,

  40. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • (2 Timothy 1:6 NKJV) Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.

  41. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • There are nine gifts here that were given without the aid of previous human ability.

  46. While God Gives a Diversity of Gifts, there will Always be a Unity of Purpose. (VV4-11) • Others may have viewed them as tools to build their own personal kingdom. • God gave them for His purposes, not man’s.

  47. God’s Purpose for Our Individual Abilities (VV 12-27) • (1 Corinthians 12:12-17 NKJV) For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. {13} For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body; whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. {14} For in fact the body is not one member but many.

  48. God’s Purpose for Our Individual Abilities (VV 12-27) • {15} If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? {16} And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? {17} If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?

  49. God’s Purpose for Our Individual Abilities (VV 12-27) • Everything we have is from God. (1 Cor 4:7)

  50. God’s Purpose for Our Individual Abilities (VV 12-27) • (1 Corinthians 4:7 NKJV) For who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?
