    Many have different gifts and ministries, but verses 4 through 7 shows that God uses the same spirit in these various gifts and roles.

    We are one body! As the scripture says. We all have different gifts and each significant. Don't let anyone tell you your gift is not sufficient according to this it is. Always strive for greater and growth but you count right now in this moment. I used to think if I didn't have the greatest gifts God didn't love me or want me. Don't be fooled by that lie from the devil. We are all his children!

    I love that chapter basically because it says that all things are right that the holy spirit gives us n it says together in unison without division and without question we will work together but a part we may be effective at times but nowhere near as effective or impressive as when we r as 1 spirit and as 1 body as one it reflects the belief that you love your neighbor as yourself 1=all:all=1

    OPEN YOUR EYES AND LOOK AT THIS YOURSELF ! Oh you who pray in the most sacred gift of speaking in tongues ! What do you think this gift was given to us for. Too put it to work and do what the Word itself tells you to do. This is how Gods people get their spiritual and physical needs met Amen. WAKE UP SAINTS BECAUSE THIS IS IT ! ITS ALL RIGHT THERE AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN ! God bless and be with you.
