Prophesy & Tongues - Part 1
Topic: New Testament Scripture: 1 Corinthians 14:1–14:13
This week, we dive back into 1 Corinthians, and we begin our look at the final of the three chapters that are devoted to the issue of Spiritual gifts.
In the first part of chapter 14, the Apostle Paul gets very practical. With the goal of serving others in mind, he asks the question: what will be more of a blessing to the church - if you can speak in tongues or if you can prophesy?
His answer reinforces the argument he's been making for the last two chapters: spiritual maturity is not evidenced by whether you can speak in tongues - instead, it's whether you are prepared to put the interests of others ahead of your own.
