|776||GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT||1 Corinthians 12, NIV|
Now about spiritual gifts, brothers,|
I do not want you to be ignorant.
There are different kinds of gifts,
but the same Spirit.
There are different kinds of service,
but the same Lord.
There are different kinds of working,
but the same God works all of them in all men.
Now to each one the manifestation of
the Spirit is given for the common good.
To one there is given through the
Spirit the message of wisdom,
to another the message of knowledge
by means of the same Spirit;
to another faith by the same Spirit,
to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,
to another miraculous powers,
to another prophecy,
to another the ability to distinguish
to another the ability to speak
in different kinds of tongues,
and to still another
the interpretation of tongues.
All these are the work of one
and the same Spirit,
and he gives them to each man,
just as he determines.
The body is a unit,
though it is made up of many parts;
and though all its parts are many,
they form one body.
So it is with Christ.
