1ST CORINTHIANS 12

For prophesy he’s always prayed,

To speak God’s words unafraid…

Speaking in tongues

On lower rungs,

But that’s an assumption he’s made.

Any and all gifts present,

Used by the Spirit’s presence…

Confirm that He

Is Deity,

Of God–His very essence!

Why many stop at one,

When many gifts are more fun…

The Lord God chooses

Whomever He uses,

Often using more than one!

Was he confirmed a prophet,

Does that do him any profit…?

Better unaware

So ego won’t share,

All credit to God, who can stop it!

Don’t stop using me Lord,

Keep me from the untoward…

Put in my mind

The excellent kind,

Of thought from Thy word!
