“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit… For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 12:4, 8, 9.
“Unity in diversity is God’s plan. Among the followers of Christ there is to be the blending of diverse elements, one adapted to the other, and each to do its special work for God. Every bearing the stamp of Christ’s image…. One is fitted to do a certain work, another has a different work for which he is adapted, another has a still different line; but each is to be the complement of the others. The Spirit of God, working in and through the diverse elements, will produce harmony of action…. There is to be only one master spirit – the Spirit of Him who is infinite in wisdom, and in whom all the diverse elements meet in beautiful, matchless unity. –Mind, Character, and Personality, vol. 2, p. 800.
The Lord desires His chosen servants to learn how to blend together. A decided influence for good is to be brought to bear on the inhabitants of the world. However diverse the talents of His workers, these workers are to labour in unity, all revealing kindness and love. By different gifts the truth is to be proclaimed, all the gifts controlled by the same Spirit.” –The Upward Look, p. 286.
