Building Up: Sovereignty, Selectivity, and Longing

As children, when Christmas comes along, we typically have a sense of longing for the gifts that may be given to us. Then as we age, that longing for gifts typically gives way to contentment with what we’ve already been given. While that may be acceptable (and even healthy!) when it comes to Christmas gifts, is that lack of longing acceptable when it comes to spiritual gifts? Listen to this sermon to hear how the apostle Paul commands believers to “earnestly desire the higher gifts.”
