Sharpen Your Discernment by Roberts Liardon
There are churches and people today who won’t hear anyone unless the minister is a teacher. They like teaching, so they overdose on every Greek and Hebrew word that’s available. Then there are those who run to the prophets, and so on. Can you imagine how these people must look in the Spirit, We can apply this humorous principle to the Spirit. God gave us all of the five-fold ministries apostle, prophet, teacher, pastor, and evangelist to fulfill and provide us with the spiritual nutrients to make us strong, well-rounded believers. If we allow our personal preferences to pick and choose the gifts we like, we’ll be deficient in some area.
