1 Corinthians 14.12-25
This coming Sunday we will be focusing on 1 Corinthians 14.12-25. In this passage the Apostle Paul says "since you are eager for spiritual gifts, strive to excel in them for building up the church" (v 12). We are called to use the gifts that the Lord has entrusted to us ----- for the upbuilding of the church. To edify one another in love. Recently, a team of 8 (6 of which came from Warren's Grove) just got back from a mission trip in Jamaica. We were there to help put in a floor in a church called Mitchell Town Methodist Church. This church had been devastated by numerous hurricanes, and they have been unable to worship in their sanctuary since 2005. We, along with about 40 people that came out from all over Jamaica, put together this project where we were able to lay a concrete foundation at the church. In this action we can see what spiritual gifts are to be used for. They are to be used for the upbuilding of the church ------ and this is to be done in love.
