"What then shall we say brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church" Paul (I Corinthians 14:26)
The Church of Corinth was struggling with certain strenuous difficulties when Paul wrote the observation transcribed herein.
The contents of the letter noted diverse spiritual problems experienced by the Peloponnesian companions; however, we can isolate the verse and apply it to various situations experienced by Christian groups formed in a Spiritist environment, in the revival of the Teachings of the Gospel.
We usually notice intense preoccupation on the part of the workers for news regarding phenomena and revelation.
Some nucleuses simply halt their activities when they do not have experienced mediums.
No medium can resolve, permanently, the fundamental problems of the illumination of companions.
Our spiritual task would be absurd if it were solely circumscribed to the mechanical frequency of others, to any Spiritist center, simply to observe the efforts of a few.
May the disciples be convinced that the tasks and the realization belong to all and that it is indispensable for each one to work within the area of edification to which they are assigned. No one can allege an absence of new information when voluminous concessions from the superior sphere await the firm decision of the apprentice of good will regarding the understanding of life and the need for improvement.
When you meet, remember the doctrine and the revelation, your ability to speak and to interpret, which you already possess, and set to work of goodness and enlightenment, towards indispensable improvement.
