    I like reading chapter 14 it gives me much confidence and I feel at peace when I'm feeling down and sad. I know God is there for us all and that's why he has given us encouragement to comfort us in our time of need. Thank-you
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Several notable Words of Christ in this Chapter. Here are some "I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."

    Wayne; There is more than just one reason for tongues; and it is of the Spirit how they are to be used. It is a sign, Yes! but shall not the unbeliever say you are mad, when they hear you speaking in tongues? It is also, and more importantly, the Spirit interceding, and for the building up of things in the Spirit, including the one praying in tongues. We should speak of things that we know!
  • Wayne
    Speaking in another language is for the hearer. Speaking in another language is a sign to the unbeliever, not the believer.
  • A disciple
    "I will pray in the Spirit; and I will pray with my understanding" The Spirit makes intercessions according to the will of God, and builds up the spiritual strength of the one praying in the Spirit. Many who don't really know, just repeat what they heard from others, and keep themselves from receiving the Blessing. In the beginning, speaking in tongues WAS THE SIGN of having received the Spirit!
  • Lu2677
    Tongues is not the only evidence that the Holy Spirit is present in ones life.The other spiritual gifts are evidenced by the Holy Spirit's work.Paul said he is glad he speaks tongue more that the others so they will have other gifts that are more helpful and edifying.Tongues is for the unbelievers to hear. Paul is not saying tongues is the best gift. Read chapter.
