Judge in Love: Orderly

“​For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.  Let all things be done decently and in order.” 1 Corinthians 14:33‭, ‬40

As Christians follow Gods spirit of love, working to give glory to God, and doing so in an orderly way, we will always focus our efforts on the gospel as God wants it.  The purpose of our life is to share the message of Christ crucified with the world, and therefore as all Christians utilize our freedom in Christ we will be sure not to put any obstacle in the way of sharing the gospel.  Let us note that, Apostle Paul, when he was spending time with Jews, he would live like a Jew.  When he was spending time with the non-Jews he would live like a non-Jew.  When he was with weaker Christians he lived as a weaker Christian so as not to give offense. In Chapter 9 verses 22-23, He said “I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.”

Practicing good order, depending solely on God’s inspired instruction, with the help of Holy Spirit, filtering off confusing angel-influenced or practically man-made doctrines, will so much be helpful for making the gospel easy to understand and easy to share. “For God is not a God of disorder but of peace”.  Therefore, as we Christians live and share the gospel in this world, we will follow the example of God and conduct ourselves and church or ministry matters in an orderly manner. As long as it is wise, useful, not a sin, and does not hurt or hamper others in their faith, we Christians will exercise our liberty, grace and love in a way that will “win as many as possible” for God. Goodluck!
