1 Corinthians 14:5-9

I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater that he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification.

But now, brethren, if I come to you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you unless I speak to you either by revelation, by knowledge, by prophesying, or by teaching?

...So likewise you, unless you utter by the tongue words easy to understand, how will it be known what is spoken? For you will be speaking into the air.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Can we have any confidence in the things of this world? It seems that the answer is no; it can all be taken away in an instant. But the one thing that can never be taken away is our faith in God, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, who has promised us that He will never leave us or forsake us. It is the one thing that will endure throughout eternity.

We can completely depend upon His promise, knowing that His love and power is stronger than any other force that exists.

God Bless You!
