Be Part of Building the Church

John Stange

1 Corinthians 14:1-25

I. Build, encourage and console (v. 1-5)

II. Say something intelligent and understandable (v. 6-12)

Matthew 5:14-16 – “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all
in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your
good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

III. Instruct others (v. 13-19)

IV. Always be mindful of your testimony (v. 20-25)

Galatians 4:3-7 – In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the
elementary principles of the world. But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his
Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we
might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son
into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son,
then an heir through God.
