Scripture Text: I Corinthians 14:1-5 (next week I Corinthians 14:6-14)
I. Speaker T - v. 2, 4a, 5
II. Speaker P - v. 1, 3, 4b, 5
And now I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
I CORINTHIANS 14:12
So also you, since you are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek to abound for the edification of the church.
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
I JOHN 4:19
We love, because He first loved us.
SCRIPTURE TEXT—I CORINTHIANS 14:1-5
Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries. But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation. One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church. Now I wish that you all spoke in tongues, but even more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may receive edifying.
