Is Speaking in Tongues Real and Relevant Today?

Episode Notes:

Focus Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Today, many people in churches claim to have the gift of speaking in tongues, that is to say, speak in a unique spiritual dialect that is sometimes not even known by the one making such utterances. Some have made the claim that they were not even aware of speaking in such a manner. Now, I will say that how someone connects and communicates with God in their private prayer life is between that person and the Lord; however, it is a whole different matter when it occurs during the gathering of the saints for praise and worship. Apostle Paul had to address speaking in tongues with the Corinthian church when nearly every member had made a claim to possess the spiritual gift, and it was causing issues and division within the church. Today’s podcast examines and answers the overarching question: Is speaking in tongues real and relevant today?

I invite you to check out our weekly Bible study podcast each Wednesday at 11 a.m. eastern. Next week, we will explore the gospel according to John throughout the season of Lent and into holy week.



“God never leaves you nor forsakes you.” I’ve heard that before.  “Jesus will leave the 99 to come after you.” I’ve heard that one too.  Meanwhile, fear creeps up when life hurls a season of loneliness our way, and poof! Churchy sayings hold as much weight as thin air.  Believe it or not, God is cheering us on and inviting us to thrive amidst the loneliness. Yes, it’s weird and scary, but this emptiness is a safe space where you get to hear the God of everything speak the loudest. You’re safe because God is so good at owning goodness amidst our dank, confused, lonely seasons, and because of Him, you aren’t so by yourself.”
