Sermon: (Part 5) Worship Must Be Understandable and Orderly
Summary: An important principle emerges from Paul’s direction to this congregation: we must balance spontaneity with order in worship. The worship at Corinth was highly spontaneous needing some orderly instruction. Conversely, many modern worship assemblies among us appear highly programmed needing some fresh spontaneity. Surely, modern worshippers can love one another and be willing to balance both spontaneity and predictability.
