HOLDTHELINE

A study in

I Corinthians


1 Cor. 14:36-40 “Spoiled Child or Humble Servant” Oct. 13, 2013

  • 1 Cor. 14:36-40

    • Or was it from you that the word of God came? Or are you the only ones it has reached? If anyone thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that the things I am writing to you are a command of the Lord. If anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. So, my brothers, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. But all things should be done decently and in order.

      • A great security in being loved by their parent

      • An unhealthy sense that “it’s all about me”
