Scripture at Sunrise 7.12.2010

“Nevertheless, in church I would rather speak five words with my mind in order to instruct others, than ten thousand words in a tongue.”  -1 Corinthians 14:19

-God’s people were gifted with other languages to share the Gospel.
-The gifts God gives to people are to be used to minister to others.
-The Corinthians desired the gifts of tongues because it was the most visible gift.  They wanted tongues more for show rather than for communication. (vs. 9)
-God’s gifts are given to EDIFY, not build yourself up.   They are to edify the body of Christ.  (vs. 5, 7, 12)
-Paul was gifted with language to share the Gospel.  (vs. 18)
-He would rather speak 5 words to people that they could understand rather than a myriad of words they couldn’t.  (vs. 19)
