Love: Spiritual Gifts in Perspective

 

Sam Storms writes: If love for other Christians does not control and shape how you employ your spiritual gift, your gift is worse than worthless, it is dangerous. Spiritual gifts are a wonderful blessing from God, but compared to the transcendent value of love they are but a temporary and incomplete dimension of Christian life. 1 Corinthians 13 is in the middle of a huge section on spiritual gifts. In chapter 12 Paul discussed the types and place of spiritual gifts, emphasising the way God has put them together in the church so it can function well. Then in chapter 14 Paul writes about the proper exercise of the gifts, how to do it and how not to do it. And right in the middle is the proper energy…the proper motive…the proper power…the proper environment in which the gifts operate…LOVE. It’s part of the more excellent way we will look at this morning.
