Diverse Ministries of the Holy Spirit

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.  There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord.  God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. – 1 Corinthians 12:4-7

An orchestra is made up of many different instruments – each making wildly different sounds, coming in many shapes and varying sizes.  In a symphony, they all play a unique combination of notes and rhythms, but when played exactly in time, under the skillful direction of the conductor, cacophony becomes harmony.  The beauty of the music can melt the hardest heart, soothe the saddest soul, or inspire the discouraged spirit to unimaginable heights.

So it is with the Holy Spirit, wielded by God the Maestro, through a timeless composition where everyone can be an instrument of purpose and praise.
