With This Faith
Rev. Kamal Hassan -- January 20, 2013
5Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
6Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
7How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
8They feast on the abundance of your house,
9For with you is the fountain of life;
10O continue your steadfast love to those who know you,
The Vindication and Salvation of Zion
1For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
2The nations shall see your vindication,
3You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord,
4You shall no more be termed Forsaken,[a]
5For as a young man marries a young woman,
1Now concerning spiritual gifts,[a] brothers and sisters,[b] I do not want you to be uninformed. 2You know that when you were pagans, you were enticed and led astray to idols that could not speak. 3Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says “Let Jesus be cursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except by the Holy Spirit.
4Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; 6and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. 7To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
