Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel.
– 1 Corinthians 14:12
I’ve counseled and prayed with many Christians over the years who are desiring and seeking for a greater experience of spiritual gifts in their lives. Too often I have found that such a desire has less to do with the edification of the church than it does a mere personal experience. Paul’s counsel is spot on. If you are desiring Spiritual gifts, let it be motivated (primarily) by the desire for edification within the Church.
