| 1 Corinthians 14:1-19 | Peter MacPherson |
Today’s Bible reading from 1 Cor 14 will look at two gifts of the spirit: tongues and prophecy. Both have a positive effect says Paul but in different ways. Paul’s main concern in the chapter is how to use these gifts to edify or build up the church. He is thinking of what happens in public worship gatherings. His conclusion is that prophecy has a more edifying effect because people attending the worship gathering will be able to understand what is being said.
