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.  (1 Corinthians 12.4-11)
