Spiritual Gifts: Unity in Diversity

12 Now (A)concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: You know (B)that[a] you were Gentiles, carried away to these (C)dumb[b] idols, however you were led. Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus [c]accursed, and (D)no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

(E)There are [d]diversities of gifts, but (F)the same Spirit. (G)There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God (H)who works [e]all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given (I)the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another (J)the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, (K)to another faith by the same Spirit, to another (L)gifts of healings by [f]the same Spirit, 10 (M)to another the working of miracles, to another (N)prophecy, to another (O)discerning of spirits, to another (P)different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, (Q)distributing to each one individually (R)as He wills.
