1 Corinthians 14:1

1 1aPursue blove, and 2cdesire earnestly dspiritual gifts, but especially that you may 3eprophesy.

13 Since to prophesy is to speak for the Lord and speak forth the Lord, that is, to minister Christ to people, which is the main element in the church meeting, prophesying requires the divine life to fill it as its content. Love is the most excellent way to experience the divine life and make it the content of the gift of prophecy for the building up of the church. Hence, we must pursue love and desire earnestly this greater gift.
