Spiritual Gifts

”But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all” (1 Corinthians 12:7 NKJV).

You have probably heard of the spiritual gifts of teaching, leadership, encouragement, mercy, and so forth that are listed in Romans Ch. 12.

The Gifts:

v.8  the word of knowledge – declaring the right or true thing

Love Is the Greatest

It seems to me that some teachers and speakers in the church today, are trying to push love off to one side. They’re trying to get love to recede into the background and bring some other issue to center stage.
