There are many spiritual gifts mentioned in the Bible especially in 1Cor.12 and Rom.12 – the gift of wisdom, faith, hospitality, leadership, speaking in other tongues and healing amongst others. In 1Cor.14:1, Pau said, “Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.” As believers, we are called first and foremost to pursue and desire God for He is our all in all. In pursuing God and all that He is, we are to pursue and desire spiritual gifts too! Amongst them, we are to especially desire the gift of prophecy. And the reason is in v.4 – “He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.” God’s desire is for us to operate in a gift that builds up the church so that believers, having been built up, will go out and bless the whole world! Tomorrow, we will look at how to operate the gift of prophecy so that lives around us are touched by the amazing love of God through our humble ministry. As you walk with God today, begin to desire and pursue the gift of prophecy. Ask God for it, hunger for it and determine to do everything you can to learn more about it and how to operate in it. Have a great day!
Today’s Bible Text: “1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. 2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God. Indeed, no-one understands him; he utters mysteries with his spirit. 3 But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort. 4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.” (1Cor.14:1-4)
