1 Corinthians 12:
 v.28 Teaching is instructing Disciples on-on-one and in groups the truths and doctrines of God’s word. This is to build up, unify, and mature the Disciple in obedience to the 3rd part of the Great Commission [Matthew 28:19-20] and create Disciple-makers.
 v.28 Helps – Helping and serving others. People with this gift recognize practical needs of others and give assistance with joy and love for Jesus. This may lead you outside your comfort zone as you follow God’s will.
 v.28 Administration enables the church to organize to fulfill God’s purposes and long term goal; This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come [Matthew 24:14]. People with this gift lead by guiding others to stay focused on their task(s) in the big picture while keeping all His commandments out of love for Jesus.
