“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” (1 Corinthians 14:30-31)

Confusion is of the devil.  What good does it do if all are speaking at the same time?  The purpose of gathering together is for the mutual edification of all.  Learn how to be silent and learn when to speak.  Learn how to do all things for the mutual building up of the body of Christ.  Keep your eye on the prize and walk in the purpose for which the Lord has called you.  You are His creation.

Lord, help me to see, understand, and live Your order of things.  Guide me according to Your goodness that I may walk humbly and obediently in the ways You are teaching me.  Let me see these things as instructions for my good, and not law.  Help me apply all that You teach me with grace and mercy knowing You do so for me.  Through all things, conform me to You that I would become like You.

Lord Jesus, You have come to show the way that as many as follow You would be conformed to the perfect image You are creating.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way You know I need to go and apply such correctives as  need to be applied.  Through all things, guide me in the way of a disciple that I would be formed more fully into Your image.  Help me to be a help to others along the way.  Amen.
