God gives spiritual gifts

 

 

If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides 

1 Pet 4:11 

 

 

But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says: 

“When he ascended on high,

he took many captives

and gave gifts to his people.” 

Eph. 4:7-8

 

 

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. 

Rom 12:4-

 

God gives spiritual gifts

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

don’t give up meeting together, 

as some are in the habit of doing, 

but encouraging one another—

and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. 

Mark 10:43-45

 

whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
