Caring for the Salvation of Others

Print Study

Author's Bias | Interpretation: conservative

In making all Believers one by the Spirit 1 Cor 12:13), the Holy Spirit serves a unifying function in bringing Believers together (2 Cor 13:14; Philip 2:1-2) for the singular purpose of serving God (1 Cor 12:27; Eph 2:19-22).

To this community of Believers, the Holy Spirit bestows spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12:1-11) for the purpose of edifying and promoting spiritual maturity (1 Cor 14:12-11) and all for the glory of God (1 Pet 4:10-11).

In this context, serving God is caring about the salvation of others whether it is salvation from the penalty of sin or salvation from the power of sin.
