Let Us Worship in a Fitting and Orderly Way

1 Corinthians 14:26-33,39-40

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • What reasons does Paul give for our worship to be fitting and orderly?
  • In vv27-35, Paul gives commands regarding three groups of people – who are these different groups?
  • For these three groups, the commands have to do with what kind of activity in the church?  What kinds of attitudes/actions are needed from everyone involved?

Other passages to consider: Ps 29:1-2; 96:1-9; 1 Cor 11; 14:1-5; 1 Thess 5:12-22; Heb 12:18-29; 1 Pet 5:5-7; 1 Jn 4:1-6

Digging Deeper:

  • How does disorder in the gatherings hinder the church being built up?
  • Are there ways the gatherings of AGC could better demonstrate order and humility?
  • How does disorder in church gatherings reflect poorly on God?  What other traits would fail to glorify God?
  • What qualities should our services be marked by to reflect the character/glory of God?

God Works through His Word

1 Corinthians 14:20-25

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • How does Paul say the Corinthians were thinking?  Did his assessment match how they viewed themselves?  How can I mature in my thinking?
  • What event is Paul referring to in v21?  What effect did the foreign tongues have on God’s people in that case?
  • What are the two scenarios described in vv23-25?  What are the results?

Other passages to consider: Deut 28:49-50; Ps 19:7-11; Isa 28:1-13; Jn 3:1-8; 1 Pet 1:23-2:3; Rom 10:9-17; 2 Tim 3:14-4:5; Heb 4:7-13

Digging Deeper:

  • How does God use His Word in the hearts of people?
  • Why would the way the Corinthians were practicing tongues further alienate unbelievers?
  • To what do churches look instead of the Word of God to bring life and change?
  • What would it look like for the gift of prophecy to be prevalent at AGC?
