1 Corinthians 12:1-3 "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware. 2 You know that when you were pagans, you were led astray to the mute idols, however you were led. 3 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."
As I was reading these verses, the thought dawned on me how the spiritual gifts are God's demonstration of His reality among believers in the world. In contrast to other so-called non-existent deities and false-gods worshiped in antiquity and today, Christianity alone proclaims that God in the Person of the Holy Spirit has given graces and giftings to every devotee of Jesus.
