Called to Be Saints - 1 Corinthians 14 – Spiritual Gifts – Why?

Edification 14:1-5
“Pursue love!” As a runner, as a predator, as prey!
“Desire” especially to prophesy. Why?
First-century tongues edified only the speaker.
First-century prophecy edified the whole church.
Not to exhibit, excite, or entertain, but to edify.
The task for each of us: to build one another up.
1 Cor 8:1; 10:23; 14:12 (strive to excel!), 17.
Eph 2:22; 4:29; 5:18-21; Rom 14:19.
Heb 10:19-26 A key purpose for the assembly.
