Theme sentence: Proper order in the church is vital for proper Gospel proclamation in the world.

Aim sentence: As the redeemed family of God we should model a redeemed order. Men and women fulfilling their roles to the glory of God.

Our conduct affects our proclamation of the Gospel.

Angry men and immodest women do not make the Gospel, and God’s family, appealing to the watching world.

As the redeemed family of God, we should model a redeemed order. Men and women fulfilling their roles to the glory of God.

The reputation of the church at risk.

Men

The men’s anger and disputes were putting the churches reputation at risk.

Paul says, “Pray with purity before God and peace before others.”

Women

The women’s immodesty in dress and immodesty in her presumption of authority over men was putting the churches reputation at risk.

Paul says, “Put on good deeds because this beautifies the Gospel to outsiders.”

The teaching of the church at risk.

The church is the Family of God. Like in a human family, God has ordered His church family to be led by men.

The church should model a redeemed order rather than following the broken order in the world around us.

Their own salvation at risk.

Paul is warning the women. He is saying, “Persevere in the normal role that God has placed you in.”

A woman wields her authority not in the church, but in the home. Work out your salvation in that sphere of influence.

Now what?

As the redeemed family of God, we should model a redeemed order. Men and women fulfilling their roles to the glory of God.
