Theme: Church Life
Thesis: Do It This Way
Scripture Text: I Corinthians 14:34-40 (next week: I Corinthians 15:1-4)
I. Women - v. 34-35
II. Whoa - v. 36-38
III. Way - v. 39-40
I CORINTHIANS 2:15 & 10:31 & 16:13-14
But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one.
Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.
II CORINTHIANS 10:7-9
You are looking at things as they are outwardly. If anyone is confident in himself that he is Christ’s, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christ’s, so also are we. For even if I boast somewhat further about our authority, which the Lord gave for building you up and not for destroying you, I will not be put to shame, for I do not wish to seem as if I would terrify you by my letters.
I TIMOTHY 2:9-12
Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.
So that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.
SCRIPTURE TEXT—I CORINTHIANS 14:34-40
The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves, just as the Law also says. If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church. Was it from you that the word of God first went forth? Or has it come to you only? If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord’s commandment. But if anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in tongues. But all things must be done properly and in an orderly manner.
