In 1 Corinthians 14, Paul encourages everyone to pursue the gift of prophecy (v. 1). The primary purpose of prophetic ministry is to strengthen, encourage, and comfort believers (v. 3). In other words, “the one who prophesies edifies the church” (v. 4). Prophecy may also bring conviction of sin to unbelievers who happen to be visiting the gathering of God’s people, as “the secrets of their hearts are laid bare” (vv. 24–25).
Paul envisions prophetic utterances teaching others (1 Cor. 14:31) and even serving as the means by which certain spiritual gifts are identified and imparted (1 Tim. 4:14). Luke describes situations in which prophecy serves to provide divine direction for ministry (Acts 13:1–3) as well as to issue warnings to God’s people (Acts 21:4, 10–14).
At Cornerstone, we are seeking to grow in the gift of prophecy. Join us for lunch and discussion about how we plan to develop the gift in the lives of our members.
