I have been looking at, comparing and contrasting the lists of spiritual gifts found in the Apostle Paul's writings (Rom. 12:6-8; I Cor. 12:8-10; 12:28; Eph. 4:11). I am considering these in light of I Peter 4:10-11: It appears from Peter that there are two broad divisions of ministry/gifts -- speaking and serving. Is it appropriate, and not wresting the Scriptures, to consider that all the spiritual gifts can and do fit into these two categories? Here are the gifts from the other passages: Romans 12:6-8 -- prophecy, ministry, teaching, exhortation, giv(ing), rul(ing), shew(ing) mercy. I Corinthians 12:8-10 -- the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues. I Corinthians 12:28 -- apostles, prophets, teachers, miracles, gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. Ephesians 4:11 -- apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.
