“Desire Spiritual Gifts”

Key Verse

“Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.” 1 Corinthians 14:1

Text — 1 Corinthians 14:1-5


Christabel loved God so much that everyone around her knew. She became born again at the age of 5. After her conversion, she began to tell others about Jesus; she was also active in the choir. She pressed further and became sanctified. Christabel was never satisfied with her spiritual state as she always desired spiritual growth. A Christian boy or girl who is genuinely born again cannot remain at one level spiritually. You need to desire spiritual gifts so that you can do more for God like Christabel in our story. Never settle for less, always desire spiritual gifts.

There are nine (9) spiritual gifts in the Bible which are: wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment of spirits, diverse kinds of tongues, and interpretation of tongues. A sinner cannot desire spiritual gifts. To benefit from these gifts you need to surrender your life to Jesus, after that, you can pray to have them and they shall be yours.
