Decent order (1 Cor. 14:40)


All things should be done


And in order.”

πάντα δὲ εὐσχημόνως καὶ κατὰ τάξιν γινέσθω.

Paul added that all things (πάντα δὲ) should be done (γινέσθω) decently (εὐσχημόνως) and in order (καὶ κατὰ τάξιν). Only the Pauline letters used this word εὐσχημόνως, that means becomingly, decorously, or decently.  Paul once again emphasized good order and decorum.  Everything should be done in a decent, proper, orderly way.  There was to be no slipshod kind of worship assembly.  Everything had its place.  This was not going to be a crazy kind of church worship, because it would be dignified and proper.  Do you believe that your church worship service is decent and orderly?
