May 3 - "Work Together for the Truth". - 3 John.  Key Verse:  We ought therefore to show hospitality to such people so that we may work together for the truth. - 3 John 8.  Central Thought:  Hospitality between Christians builds a bond that strengthens ministry and contributes to the mission of spreading the truth of the gospel to all.

May 10 - "Gifts of the Spirit". - 1 Corinthians 12: 1 - 11.  Key Verse:  Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. - 1 Corinthians 12: 7.  Central Thought:  Spirituality is not a competitive event but a cooperative venture.  The Spirit distributes his gifts so that believers are compelled to rely on each other in unity.  The spirit of Christ compels us to become like Christ.

May 17 - "One Body Many Members". - 1 Corinthians 12: 12 - 31.  Key Verse:  We were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body - whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free - and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. - 1 Corinthians 12: 13.  Central Thought:  As members of Christ's body, we learn to treasure differences among us, to rely on those unlike ourselves, to celebrate what God can do when we unite in the power of his Spirit and in the name of his Son.

May 24 - "Gift of Languages". - 1 Corinthians 14: 13 - 19.  Key Verse:  So what shall I do?  I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding, I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding. - 1 Corinthians 14: 15.  Central Thought:  Some of the Corinthians sought their own prestige.  We need to consider how we use the abilities that God's Spirit has given us.  We need to give careful thought to act in the name of Christ to strengthen the whole church.

May 31 - "The Greatest is Love". - 1 Corinthians 13.  Key Verse:  Now these three remain:  faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love. - 1 Corinthians 13: 13.  Central Thought:  We need to see each other as God sees us:  of great worth despite the way we fail and disappoint.  In loving others as God loves us, we gain a glimpse of what life, what eternal life, is all about.
