This last week at Third Thursday, we took a pause from our normal format and rhythm to spend some time teaching through 1 Corinthians 14, specially on and around prophecy. As we opened up this chapter together, we observed a crucial underlying tone: pursue love. Paul as he is instructing a church that has become a bit unruly, begins his instruction regarding spiritual gifts with a very important first step. Before you use spiritual gifts, pursue love.
If you want to use spiritual gifts that Glorify God and edify the church you must be one who loves Jesus, loves others and especially his Church. This can only be done if you have received the precious love that the Father has for you.
Then we spent the majority of our time, white board style, teaching through the scriptures and discerning what this meant for Anthem. We recorded the audio for those who were not able to join us, or for those who want to follow up, I encourage to take a listen!
We will be publishing another post in the coming days answer some of the questions we did not get to in the live Q&A time at the end of the teaching.
