''And in the Church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophetes, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? But eagerly desire the greatest gifts.''
4. Ephesians 4: 7-8, 11-13
''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 led captives in His train and gave gifts to men.''
'' It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and some teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledg of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fulness of Christ.''
5.1 Peter 4:10-11
''Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in it various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.''
