1 Corinthians 12:29-31 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
29 All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of miracles, are they? 30 All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they? 31 But earnestly desire the greater gifts.
And I show you a still more excellent way.
God does not want any of us confused about who we are.
He desires for us all to live in proper identity. At the same time may of us go through a process that shows us our true calling.
We must not get enamored with the gift or call of another.
Instead we must be satisfied with who we are and not envy anyone for their gifts. We can desire to flow and seek God for an impatient of this grace. Yet we must remain in Him and not allow ourselves to get derailed by the lack of a answer that is seemingly no.
- Does God allow us to ask for what we don’t have?
- How is it that we are not all able to flow the same?
- Is there something that God is trying to tell us in the statement: ” And I show you a still more excellent way.”?
