EVIDENCES OF A DIVINE ORDER
I Corinthians 14:33
July 6, 2014
From Genesis to Revelation, Divine order is evident.
The Lord gave order to the universe during creation.
The Lord established order as He ordained the home and marriage.
The Lord gave Aaron and his sons the order when the tabernacle was erected.
Divine order is much more than structure and organization. It brings confidence and direction to our lives.
The order of some things recorded in the gospel of Matthew:
1. BEFORE WE WORSHIP WE NEED TO GET RIGHT WITH OUR BROTHER - Matthew 5:23-24
2. BEFORE MATERIAL THINGS WE NEED TO PUT SPIRITUAL THINGS FIRST - Matthew 6:33
3. BEFORE WE TRY TO JUDGE ANYONE ELSE WE MUST FIRST JUDGE OURSELVES - Matthew 7:1-5
4. BEFORE THE OUTSIDE THE INSIDE MUST BE FIRST - Matthew 23:25-26
What evidence should be found in our lives to give indication that we are walking in divine order?
