Speaking in tongues gives access to greater realms of God which benefits us deeply and those around us profoundly. Being baptized in the Holy Spirit does not make one believer better than another. There are no inferior believers in God’s Kingdom. When we are speaking in tongues, we are speaking in a language God has given us to speak to him with. 1 Corinthians 14:2 “For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God,”
When we speak in tongues we are given the ability to strengthen, the spirit man. 1 Corinthians 14:4 “He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself,” Jude 20 “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has come to not only empower the believer but to make them more like Jesus. Sin’s influence weakens as we make room to strengthen our spirits ushering us into the Power of Christ within us.
Why It Is Important To Speak In Tongues
Every born again Christian should speak in tongues, for it is the Spirit of God Who lives in you that gives you the ability to do so. Now if you are born again and do believe, but don’t speak in tongues yet; then you need to start today. You can do so right now by praying thus: ‘Dear Father, I want to worship You in spirit and in truth, therefore I believe and give the Holy Spirit charge to go ahead and utter in tongues unto You prayers of worship and thanks giving in Jesus Name!” Now all you need to do is open your mouth and speak whatever the Holy Spirit put in your mouth.
If you find it difficult to speak in tongues, then find someone who does speak in tongues to lay hands on you and help you by praying in tongues over you. What we must realize is that to start speaking in tongues is like a baby starting to speak his/her first words. The vocabulary might not be full, but there will be words coming out – just go ahead and speak, with often speaking in tongues, your vocabulary will increase.
