Jealousy and Spiritual Gifts by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 05/16/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The Bible tells us that every believer in Christ has a spiritual gift.

First Corinthians gives us the picture of a church that had a wrong perspective on spiritual gifts. The members in that church were flaunting their gifts in order to impress each other. They were claiming their gift was more important than others. And everyone wanted the spectacular gifts—ones that drew attention to themselves.

The result was a church filled with conflict, carnality, and broken relationships. Paul wrote this church with the solution. He said, “Pursue love. Love does not envy or boast.” He reminded them that tongues, knowledge, and prophesy would pass away, but love would abide forever.

So use the spiritual gift God has given you. But as you do, make sure you are pursuing love.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
