26. What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.
27. If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret.
28. If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and to God.
29. Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said.
30. And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop.
31. For you can all prophesy in turn so that everyone may be instructed and encouraged.
32. The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets.
33. For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.
34. Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says.
35. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.
36. Or did the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reached?
37. If anyone thinks they are a prophet or otherwise gifted by the Spirit, let them acknowledge that what I am writing to you is the Lord’s command.
38. But if anyone ignores this, they will themselves be ignored.
39. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.
40. But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.


Today’s passage reminds us that our God is not a God of disorder, but of peace. This implies that any manifestation of spiritual gifts that lead to division rather than unity of the church is either not of God or it is done out of spiritual immaturity. Spiritual gifts should be used to unite the church and glorify God and not to divide the body of Christ. If you do otherwise, your spiritual maturity is questionable. Moreover, our text instructs us to conduct our church services orderly and peacefully, as a reflection of the God we serve. Order should be cherished both in homes and organisations where people relate, this will promote peaceful coexistence. Orderliness brings better productivity. Are you an orderly person? If not be one.
