September 21, Monday Devotion

1 Corinthians 12:27-31

27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 28 And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? 31 But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.

Quick Notes

There are a lot of things to say about this passage, but what stands out is to desire the greater gifts. What this means is that we should never be satisfied where we are in life. We always need to be striving to find more ways to share the gospel. That is our desire - to grow in grace and peace.

Quick Questions

How do you strive and desire the greater gifts?
