What is the Value of Speaking in Tongues?

Speaking in Tongues is simply your own spirit praying through you in a language that you have never learned or understand. This is done by the enabling and empowering of the Holy Spirit. Speaking in Tongues may be one of the most controversial topics of discussion in Christian circles today. The Bible teaches that it is the initial physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. In 1st Corinthians 12 it is listed as one of the Gifts of the Spirit. Paul dedicated an entire chapter on the subject(1st Corinthians 14). Jesus said that it is one of the “signs” that would follow those who believe in him(Mark 16:17). Despite all this overwhelming evidence that the phenomenon of Speaking in Tongues is supported by Scripture, many believers do not embrace it. The discussion these days is not the validity of Speaking in Tongues but rather the value of doing so. After all, whats the point? Why should anyone want to Speak in Tongues?

First off, as stated before Speaking in Tongues is the initial physical evidence of the Spirits Baptism which is an experience that anyone desiring to live a Christian life of power should be seeking.
There are times when we don’t know what we should pray for, or even how we should pray. The Bible tells us that in times like these that come all too often in this day in age, we can rely on the Holy Spirit to help us pray through tongues. We can be certain that when we pray in tongues, we are praying correctly, accurately, and perfectly.
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.” -Romans 8:26-27

The Bible also tells us that when we Speak in Tongues we are personally bui;t up and edified by doing so.
Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves, but the one who prophesies edifies the church. -1 Corinthians 14:4

Don’t miss out on all that God has for you simply because of misconceptions and ignorance. Search the scriptures to clear up any confusion or doubt on the subject of tongues. Seek the outpouring of the Spirit today, and all the fullness thereof.
