Epistle: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11

Spiritual Gifts

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninformed.
You know that when you were pagans you were led astray to mute idols,
however you were led. Therefore I want you to understand that no one
speaking in the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus is accursed!” and no one can say
“Jesus is Lord” except in the Holy Spirit.

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are
varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but
it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the
manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given through
the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge
according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another
gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to
another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to
another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All
these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one
individually as he wills.
P: This is the Word of the Lord.
C: Thanks be to God.
