Why we permit the gifts of the Spirit?

1 Corinthians 12:7-12
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for each one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophesy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing each one individually as He wills. For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.

Why the worship service is longer?

Why the worship service is longer?

When we gather for worship, the Lord wants to meet with us. His purpose is not seeking worship, but rather He is seeking worshippers. For every service God has a plan and a purpose. That means the worship leader, singers, musicians, and all the congregation must function in their priestly relationship with God to hear what the Spirit is saying and make room for that to be expressed in our lives individually and as a congregation. We wait in His presence until we hear in our hearts His purpose for us. That may be revealed through song, prayer, exhortation, intercession, or spiritual warfare. (Colossians 3:16-17). He is an awesome God and cannot be explored in a few minutes or praised in a moment. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6) He is our strength and our portion (Psalm 73:26).

Colossians 3:16-17
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Psalm 73:26
My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
