1 Corinthians 12:5-6

_ _ “Gifts” (1 Corinthians 12:4), “administrations” (the various functions and services performed by those having the gifts, compare 1 Corinthians 12:28), and “operations” (the actual effects resulting from both the former, through the universally operative power of the one Father who is “above all, through all, and in us all”), form an ascending climax [Henderson, Inspiration].

_ _ same Lord — whom the Spirit glorifies by these ministrations [Bengel].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 12:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 12:5
