The next scripture references refer to Ministerial Gifts, not to The Faith That Is Given To all people (including those people who Have Been Bestowed with Ministerial Gifts). I am including the scriptures here because this study is comprised of all the scriptural references found in The New King James version and the New Living Translation of The Holy Bible. revrob
1 Corinthians 12:4-14 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 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. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills. 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. 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. For in fact the body is not one member but many.
‘The body’ spoken of in the above scriptures refers to the people who believe that JESUS Was Sent to the earth in order to Demonstrate how holy people should Live, and To Give His Life so that our sins would be forgotten by GOD. Our Faith in The Purposes Of GOD through JESUS’ Life makes us holy in His Eyes, and as we follow His SPIRIT, we become His Children. revrob Eph 4:25-27 Romans 8:14
1 Corinthians 13:2,7,13 … though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. There are three things that will endure — faith, hope, and love — and the greatest of these is love.
