We began our study of spiritual gifts last week by examining how spiritual gifts were given to Christians. We noticed in that study that the scriptures repeatedly describe Christians receiving spiritual gifts only by an apostle laying his hands on a Christian (Acts 8:15-18; Romans 1:9-11; 2 Timothy 1:6-7). Paul writes this section concerning spiritual gifts to the Corinthians so that they would not be led astray or uninformed about these gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1). In the same way, we want to have our faith built on a firm foundation so that we are not uninformed or led astray by false teaching.
