Sermon Notes 1 Corinthians 12

  • As a follower of Jesus, you have the Holy Spirit within you (12:4-6)
  • With the Spirit within you, you are gifted to serve others (12:7-11)
  • Gifted to serve, you have a ministry to fulfill (12:12-24)
  • With a ministry to fulfill, you help care for others and they help care for you (12:24-26)

To find your place in ministry:

  • Have the right attitude (remember the things above and be willing to serve)
  • Look out: what needs do you see in the church or in the community?
  • Look in: what are your God-given passions, experiences, abilities, and resources; and how do they intersect with the needs you see?
  • Look around: is there already a ministry in place for this?
