1 Corinthians 12:10-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)

10 And to another the power to work miracles.[a]
    And to another the gift of prophecy.[b]
    And to another the gift to discern what the Spirit is speaking.[c]
    And to another the gift of speaking different kinds of tongues.
    And to another the gift of interpretation of tongues.

11 Remember, it is the same Holy Spirit who distributes, activates, and operates these different gifts as he chooses for each believer.[d]

One Body with Many Parts

12 Just as the human body is one, though it has many parts that together form one body, so too is Christ.[e]


  1. 1 Corinthians 12:10 This includes the divine ability to still a storm, feed a multitude, walk on water, cast out demons, turn water into wine, and raise the dead. This gift was one of the distinctive marks of an apostle. See 2 Cor. 12:12.
  2. 1 Corinthians 12:10 This gift is a supernatural ability, given by the Holy Spirit, to speak the word of God in proclamation and at times in predicting the future. This is one gift that every believer should desire and never despise. See 1 Cor. 14:1; 1 Thess. 5:19-20; 1 Tim. 1:18; 4:14.
  3. 1 Corinthians 12:10 This gift imparts divine discernment to know if a prophetic message is from the Holy Spirit or from a human or demonic source. See Acts 5:3. Discernment is greatly needed in the church today to hear the voice of the Lord clearly and to know when defilement is attempting to enter the assembly.
  4. 1 Corinthians 12:11 Spiritual gifts are given by the Holy Spirit at any time to anyone he chooses.
  5. 1 Corinthians 12:12 Christ is now a body with many parts. The human body of Jesus is glorified and enthroned in heaven. So also is the body of Christ. We are co-enthroned with him (Rom. 8:29-30; Eph. 2:6; Col. 3:1-4), but we continue to exist on earth to represent him to the world.
