Plenary 4

Sam Storms

The Beauty of Spiritual Language: What is Speaking in Tongues, Why did God create it, and How might we recover its use for the glory of Christ and the edification of his people?

Speaking in tongues either frightens people or embarrasses them, or both. It seems and sounds so weird. What possible reason could God have had for making this gift available to his people? What purpose does it serve in our lives and how might we reclaim its use in a way that honors God’s Word, while avoiding the extremes and errors of those who would make it a measure of spirituality? If none other than the Apostle Paul could say, “I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you” (1 Cor. 14:18), who are we to so casually and critically dismiss this wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit? So, if you’re curious about speaking in tongues and, better still, hungry to experience this spiritual gift, this session is for you.
