Why is every living human being uniquely gifted, unusually talented, differently impassioned, strangely warmed? To be better "people"? To be better "subjects"? To gain the golden ticket - to pass through the pearly gates? Paul believed that each and every one of us has been imbued our own personal "manifestation" of the Spirit. I like that word, "manifestation". A manifestation can be an event or a thing which embodies (incarnates) an abstract idea. It can be a sign or a symptom. Most importantly, it is manifestare - to make public.
Paul likened us to human anatomy - each a different body part with discrete yet overlapping and inter-related functions, yet all One whole, complete, functioning being. Each part integral for working together towards the common good of one body. A body animated by spirit / a Body animated by Spirit - a Community.
Let the thirsty come forward.
Let the believer drink deeply;
Rivers of Living Water shall flow,
From within each believer's heart.
All drink from the same font -
All made Whole in One.
