God can use all our gifts, even in unexpected ways.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11
4 There are different kinds of gifts. But they are all given by the same Spirit.
5 There are different ways to serve. But they all come from the same Lord.
6 There are different ways to work. But the same God makes it possible for all of us to have all those different things.
7 The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all.
8 To some people the Spirit gives the message of wisdom. To others the same Spirit gives the message of knowledge.
9 To others the same Spirit gives faith. To others that one Spirit gives gifts of healing.
10 To others he gives the power to do miracles. To others he gives the ability to prophesy. To others he gives the ability to tell the spirits apart. To others he gives the ability to speak in different kinds of languages they had not known before. And to still others he gives the ability to explain what was said in those languages.
11 All of the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. He gives them to each person, just as he decides.
