Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: 2 You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led. 3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.
4 There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills. — 1 Corinthians 12:1-11.
The Spirit of God will always exalt Jesus. When He is at work, idolatry will give way for the true worship of God. He gives the spiritual gifts to the church at Corinth. Although members of that church possess different spiritual gifts, and are involved in different ministries and activities, they all come from the same Lord. The gifts are given to the Corinthians on a varied and specific individual basis, as God wills, to benefit the whole church. [The Bible Panorama.]
