Pastor Jordan Taylor encourages us to ask these questions: “What are the needs of our church community? Who needs to be built up? Who needs to be served? Who needs to be helped? And how can I use my spiritual gifts to meet those needs?” The challenge of 1 Corinthians 13 is that we are supposed to build up the church and serve others, but this is ineffective if we don’t love one another. In biblical terms, we could say the fruit of the spiritual gifts is rotten without love.
