We are working through 1 Corinthians 12-14 and doing it as a part of a series understanding the whole topic of spiritual gifts.
I think God’s goal from this passage of the bible is pretty much summed up in chapter 14, verse 1.
14:1 Pursue love and desire spiritual gifts, and above all that you may prophesy.
Last week the argument was love is essential.
Love is what you need to be more than nothing.
Love lasts for ever.
And it was pretty clearly implied that love is what you should be on about.
But now it is made concrete, with a command from God, to pursue love.
