1 Thess. 5:20 “Don’t despise prophesies.”
Gal. 4:11 He gave some to be apostles; and some, *prophets*; and some, evangelists; and some, shepherds [pastors] and teachers; 12 for the PERFECTING of the saints, to the work of serving, to the building up of the body of Christ; 13 *until we all attain to the unity* of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a *full grown* man, to the measure of the stature of the *fullness of Christ*; 14 that we may no longer be children, tossed back and forth and carried about with every *wind of doctrine*, by the *trickery* of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error; 15 but speaking truth in love, we may *grow up in all things into him*, who is the head, Christ; 16 from whom all the body, being fitted and knit together through that which every joint supplies, according to the working in measure of each individual part, makes the body increase to the building up of itself in love.
