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?
