Cooperation with God

Cooperation with God

Mar 26, 2023

Passage: 1 Corinthians 14:26-40

Preacher: Bishop Jayson Quiñones

Series: Church Function


One thing that we know from Genesis (creation account) to Revelation (the new heavens and new earth) is that the God of the Bible is a God of order. He has a perfect eternal plan, and He enlists the partnership of imperfect people to bring it about. When the imperfect vessels, like Moses, David, Elijah, adhere to His directives, they always see the glory of God in real-time. The opposite is also true!


Sermon Points

1. We must choose between the fruit of cooperation or confusion: (vv.26-33)

  • 26  Well, my brothers and sisters, let’s summarize. When you meet together, one will sing, another will teach, another will tell some special revelation God has given, one will speak in
    tongues, and another will interpret what is said. But everything that is done must strengthen all of you. (NLT—I Cor. 14:26)
  • As followers of Jesus, and members of the body of Christ, we should always desire to cooperate with God in the exercise of our gifts…we should never gather with the body empty-
    handed, empty-hearted, or empty-spirited!
  • No prophetic word should be viewed as Scripture. A prophet, or a prophetic word, MUST NOT introduce new doctrine, or add to the Bible, and must be subject to the authority of the
    Scriptures, measured by the word and character of God, and submitted to the leadership of the church.

2. Our cooperation with God is found in connection with His commands: (vv.34-38)

  • Any true authority in the church comes from the word of God rightly divided, and this is only the result of a person who rightly reveres the word of God

3. Cooperation with God ensures our gatherings accomplish His plans: (vv.39-40)

  • Our worship services should be a demonstration of cooperation with God, in which, His gifts are manifested, His love is governing, His body is built up faith, His people are built in unity,
    His church is sent out on mission, and His creation is impacted!

Cooperation with God is only guaranteed when we align ourselves to biblical order
