1 Corinthians 14:1-a Spiritual Gifts

 Pursue love and desire spiritual gifts...[1]

[1] When Paul exhorts believers to desire spiritual gifts, he is not only addressing the early Church. 

From his letter to the Ephesians, we know that he understood that the Gifts of the Holy Spirit were going to be present and available to the Out-Called until Jesus comes again and makes all things complete.  But he is clear in his admonition that though spiritual gifts are worthy of our passive longings—even yearnings—our active efforts of pursuit, should be wholly focused on walking and growing in love. If we can accomplish that, there is no spiritual law we will violate, and we will grow from children to adults in the Lord Matthew 22:37-40 Luke 10:27-28, 1 Corinthians 13:11 & 13, Galatians 5:14.

Are you reading our Bibles every day, always picking up today where you left off yesterday? Are you doers of the Word and not hearers only? Do you know Jesus as your savior? Are you absolutely certain that you have eternal life? Learn more about it in the book, REDEMPTION: Bible Prophecy Simplified.
