Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.
1 Corinthians 14:1
Paul is telling the Corinthians that first they need to pursue love. After that, they should desire the spiritual gifts, especially prophecy.
God has been working on me to love others. Even if I don’t want to. I think He’s using this verse to say that after pursuing love, I should be desiring the gifts of the spirit, especially prophecy.
Dear Father, I pray that you would help me to learn to love first. I pray that you will help me to desire the gifts of the spirit, especially prophecy. And I pray that you will start to work those gifts into my life. In Jesus name, amen.
