1 Corinthians 12. There are different spiritual gifts, but the same God works in all of them. There is unity in diversity, and yet we are one body in Christ, one body with many parts and all are important for “by one spirit are we all baptized into one body” so now Paul says “ye are the body of Christ.” As to gifts there is a more excellent way.

2 Chronicles 18. The prophet  Micaiah warns Ahab of Israel,but Ahab listens to false prophets instead.  The result is that Ahab dies in battle.

2 Chronicles 19. King Jehoshaphat returns to Jerusalem and institutes a number of reforms.

2 Chronicles 20. Because Jehoshaphat turned to God, Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir were defeated and there was peace until the end of Jehoshaphat’s reign, but he made an alliance with Israel to build trading ships, and they were destroyed.
