Decent and in Order
1 Corinthians 14:40
"Let all things be done decently and in order."
Order is necessary. Jesus didn't do anything He wanted to do, nor did He say anything He wanted to say (John 5:30). Yet, so many of us feel that our gifts or tenure in the church somehow qualify us to do as we please. Not so! This walk is not about us. It's a walk of humility... one that must bring glory to the Father.
Obedience is required! Order is necessary! Discipline and self-control must be employed. The flesh must die. The time will come, if it hasn't already, that all of us must do things we don't desire to do for God. Still, right is right. One who doesn't have the discipline to obey God's word and be accountable to His people simply doesn't belong to Him. No more excuses! Holiness is impossible without order!
ORDER IN THE CHURCH!
