2 Corinthians 12:19; 2 Corinthians 13:10; 1 Corinthians 12:7

19 Have you been thinking all along that we have been defending ourselves to you? It is fin the sight of God that we have been speaking in Christ, and gall for your upbuilding, beloved.

10 For this reason I write these things while I am away from you, that when I come zI may not have to be asevere in my use of bthe authority that the Lord has given me for building up and not for tearing down.

wTo each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
