Is it Clear?

The following blog entry is compliments of Pastor Leon Hiebert, Community Care Pastor of Generations Church

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 14:40 But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.

Observation: This is the last verse in chapter 14, the subject being the times when Christians gather; today we call it a “church service” or “mass.”  Although Paul deals with several specific issues, the over-riding theme is that things should be done in a way that people can understand.   God desires that people be strengthened in their faith and encouraged to live appropriately.   They must be able to  understand.

Application: When I am writing a letter, or a report, or a book, I need to consider how the readers will best understand.   When I sing a song I need to make sure the listeners can understand.  When I live my life, I need to make sure that those around me understand the priorities and purpose God has given me.  What is God saying through me?  Is that message clear to others?  I need to be careful that my actions do not negate my message.

Prayer: Lord, help me to talk and act in ways that make You easily seen and understood. Amen.
