“What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. If anyone speaks in a tongue, it should be by two or at the most three, and each in turn, and one must interpret” (1 Corinthians 14:28-29)

The purpose of the working of the Holy Spirit in the midst of the congregation is for edification. It is not a matter of any one person being lifted up, but that the Lord should be Lord of all who are gathered. Let your worship be orderly and in the Spirit and truth. Let your praise be to the One who makes all things possible. Be led by the Spirit in all things and turn your attention to what He is doing.

Lord, take my eyes off of me and let them be upon You. Guide me in thought, word and deed that I may now and always praise You in all things. Where you would have me do something, lead me to see that it is You who is doing it and worthy of all praise. Guide my heart, mind, and soul to live in the truth of Your goodness and mercy all the days of my life. You are the One Who always leads us!

Lord Jesus, You ascended that the Holy Spirit would come to lead us in and through all things in this age. In Your goodness, You have already provided all that is needed. Lead me, O Lord, that I may now and always abide in the truth of Your goodness and mercy. Teach me and lead me to be humble and use all the good things You give for the sake of the fellowship You are building. Amen.
