8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:8-12 KJV
When you are saved by Christ’s atoning blood,
You then become much more than family;
The Spirit enters you just like a flood
And works on you uniquely by degree.
Just as the body is comprised of parts,
Each part designed to function for the whole,
Yet none can long survive when pulled apart
But thrives with all the others in their role.
The Holy Spirit knows your aptitude
And fashions you to serve in harmony.
It may not always be what you pursued
Before you came to Christ and was set free.
The gift the Spirit lays upon your heart
You’ll find in time was perfect from the start.
