Youth Group Lesson: Discovering Your Role in the Body of Christ 1 Corinthians 12:3-11


As teenagers, it can be hard to figure out where we fit in the world. We’re constantly bombarded with messages telling us who we should be and what we should do. It can be overwhelming trying to make sense of it all. But the good news is that God has a specific plan and purpose for each and every one of us. In 1 Corinthians 12:3b-13, Paul reminds us that we are all part of the body of Christ, and each of us has a unique role to play.

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:3b-6

“No one can say, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ except by the Holy Spirit. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.”

Explanation for Teenagers

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:7-11

“Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.”
