Why All Believers Should Speak in Tongues
The Holy Spirit's gift of tongues has not passed away--and every Christian should be open to it.
In 1 Corinthians 14:40 KJV, Paul instructed the Corinthians on how the spiritual gift of tongues should be exercised in the church service-decently and in order.
But nowhere did he say that this gift had passed away or that that it should not be received and exercised by all believers.
Some people teach against things they don't understand or have not personally experienced. This is sad and robs many people of God's fullness for them.
Each of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is important and each has a role to play in the life of the believer. Open your heart to the Lord in faith and trust, allowing Him not only to fill you with his Holy Spirit, but also to impart to you the particular gifts He wants you to have-including the gift of tongues.
