Theme: Church Life
Thesis: Do It This Way
Scripture Text: I Corinthians 14:26-33 (next week: church campout)
I. Rules - v. 26-32
II. Reason - v. 33
ROMANS 14:19 & 15:2
So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another.
Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification.
I CORINTHIANS 10:23 & 14:3
All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify.
But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation.
II CORINTHIANS 12:19
All this time you have been thinking that we are defending ourselves to you. Actually, it is in the sight of God that we have been speaking in Christ; and all for your upbuilding, beloved.
SCRIPTURE TEXT—I CORINTHIANS 14:26-33
What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. If anyone speaks in a tongue, it should be by two or at the most three, and each in turn, and one must interpret; but if there is no interpreter, he must keep silent in the church; and let him speak to himself and to God. Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others pass judgment. But if a revelation is made to another who is seated, the first one must keep silent. For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all may be exhorted; and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets; for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.
