8 Gifts of the Spirit 1 Corinthians 12: 4-11 no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except in the Holy Spirit.4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; 6 and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spiritfor the common good.8 For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom,and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit,9 to another faith by the same Spirit,to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,10 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.11 All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit,who apportions to each one individually as he wills.
