1 Corinthians 14:1 NLT
Let love be your highest goal! But you should also desire the special abilities the Spirit gives—especially the ability to prophesy.
The purpose of spiritual gifts is to help our walk with Jesus and help others in the body of Christ.
God wants us to have these gifts, so we should pray for them. Just remember that it’s our character, not our gifts, that measure how we stand with God and our spiritual maturity (1 Corinthians 13:1-2).
1 Corinthians 12:7-10 NIV
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.
