June 10, 2018 • Paul Barnard

Honor IX Order *Honor IX “From Chaos to Order”* 1Co 14:26 What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. 1Co 14:33 For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. 1Co 14:40 But all things should be done decently and in order. *Intro:* Building something without instructions generally ends up wrong and you have to teardown and redo. Order is the opposite of Chaos-Absence of order *1. Everything has an order-* 1. When order is broken the enemy moves in through confusion 2. Examples- Relational issues, Church Service, Truth telling vs passive aggressiveness 3. Men and Women *2. Confusion =Chaos / Order = Peace* 1. Commitment Chaos vs. Order in Consistency 2. Financial Chaos Vs Order in a budget 3. Family Chaos Vs Order in God’s Word 4. Spiritual Chaos vs. Order in Routinely seeking God *3. Creating and maintaining order:* 1. It takes blind faith - you have to go against culture (which feels wrong) and go with God 2. It takes perseverance - The teardown (consequences) are frustrating as we rebuild 3. It takes a “have to” attitude- Creating order from chaos will not happen without resolve Step 1- Read God’s Word, seek Godly counsel Step 2- Do what it says no matter what Step 3- trust God and see God *Conclusion:* Life does not have to be chaotic- we serve a God of peace- *QUESTIONS:* 1. What stood out to you in today’s sermon? 2. What part of your life seems chaotic? Talk through the solutions 3. Why is it so hard to escape chaos? 4. What is a good first step to eliminating chaos?
