Scripture Text: I Corinthians 12:1-3 (next week I Corinthians 12:4-11)
I. True - v. 1

I CORINTHIANS 12:11
But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.
I PETER 4:10
As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
To whom would you liken Me And make Me equal and compare Me,That we would be alike? Those who lavish gold from the purse And weigh silver on the scale Hire a goldsmith, and he makes it into a god; They bow down, indeed they worship it. They lift it upon the shoulder and carry it; They set it in its place and it stands there. It does not move from its place. Though one may cry to it, it cannot answer; It cannot deliver him from his distress.
I THESSALONIANS 1:9
For they themselves report about us what kind of a reception we had with you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve a living and true God.
I CORINTHIANS 14:37-38
If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord’s commandment. But if anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized.
SCRIPTURE TEXT—I CORINTHIANS 12:1-3
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware. You know that when you were pagans, you were led astray to the mute idols, however you were led. Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
