Dr. Couch, what does "effect" mean in 1 Corinthians 12:10?
ANSWER: It is the Greek word for "work," dunamis. It can be translated "to produce power or results." It reads in many versions: "to another the effecting ..." These are the gifts of the Holy Spirit listed in this context. He is the one producing works coming through the believer.
Thanks for asking. —Dr. Mal Couch (8/11)
