1 Corinthians
12:4-6

 

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.

 

There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord.

 

God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.

 

(New Living Translation)
