1 Corinthians 14:40

1 Corinthians 14:40

Let all things be done decently and in order.
1 Corinthians 14:40

One mistake people make about the Lord is He’s good with whatever people want to do. He’s accepting of all things, because a God of love wouldn’t judge others for their behavior.

The Corinth church certainly acted like that’s the God they served. Their church services had no order, with everyone talking at the same time and interrupting the Word being taught. Paul told them in 1 Corinthians 14:33, God is not the author of confusion.

When I teach a Sunday School class, I make sure there’s some order to the class so that the children there can hear God’s word clearly. If I let the kids do what they wanted, no one would ever hear the word. They’d be too busy playing and talking.

The same goes for the adult church. It’s meant to be a place run decently and with order so that God’s word can penetrate the hearts of the people. May we follow the direction of our God in Heaven.
