1 Corinthians 12:6
God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.
1 Corinthians 15:10
But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me--and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by his grace.
