Sign for UnbelieversDaily Thoughts
1 Corinthians 14:22 “Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers…”
There have been the few occasions in my life where the Holy Spirit has come upon me in such power and has enabled me to speak in other languages. Languages I did not understand but spoke fluently like it was my first language.
It’s like a fire raging inside of you which turns into an explosion of spiritual vocabulary as the spirit takes over. Your mind is absent from understanding and comprehension, yet it is the most real and affirming experience you’ve ever had.
Acts 2:7-8 “They were completely amazed. “How can this be?” they exclaimed. “These people are all from Galilee and yet we hear them speaking in our own native languages!
These kind of moments are great for reaffirming our faith, as any kind of doubt gets knocked out the park by the very real miracle at work within you. Yet what we read here is that ‘speaking in tongues’ is a sign for unbelievers, not for you!
A lot of non-believers question the evidence of miracles, saying there are none. Perhaps only a small portion of believers have experienced a miracle (such as a physical healing), but the vast majority of believers have experienced the miracle of tongues. Perhaps God enables this gift in all of us as a sign to those around us? Be all the more eager to share your miracle!
