Paul hears that the Church in Corinth has fallen into dissension and quarrelling because some believe they are more spiritual than others because they believe some gifts are greater than others.

If God has spiritually gifted each member of his Church, and he has done so to benefit all, the clear and obvious question the text asks of us, is how are we using our gifts?

As we enter this new year, how are you responding to the news of Jesus?
