Pursue this love, that Christ may dwell in your heart by faith, so that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may comprehend, understand the length, the width, the depth and the height, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge.
Therefor, pursue this love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.
But one who prophesies speaks edification, exhortation and comfort to men. He who speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself, but he who prophecies edifies the Church.
Now unto Him Who is able to do far above all the you could ask or think, according to His power that is at work in you, unto Him be all the glory in the Church.
Now let him who prophesies, prophesy accord to the measure of his faith, for the LORD will be with his mouth.
